Grandparents Day at Stein Farm on 9/12

Grandparents Day will be celebrated on Saturday, 12 September, at the Stein Family Farm Museum in National City, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The farm is located at the corner of F Avenue and 18th Street just across from the John Otis elementary school.

The public is invited to this FREE family event to experience life on a farm in a much earlier time.

Children can take part in sewing and laundry with a scrub board, and will meet the pig, the goose and the chickens that live at the farm. They will see antique farm machinery, view the butterfly garden, the herb beds, and the orchard. Many of the plantings are typical of the time when the farm was the home of the Steins, of German heritage.

The Chula Vista Genealogical Society will have a table at the Farm with family group sheets and pedigree charts to encourage people to write down their family history information.

For more information, call 1-619-477-4113. Visit the Stein Family Farm website at
