The public is invited to attend a free WaterWays Smithsonian program “Makers Corner: Bousillage for Kids” offered at the Pascagoula Public Library on Saturday, October 27, at 3:30 p.m. Join us in front of the library and find out what is “bousillage”. Get ready to get dirty and learn. The LaPointe-Krebs House and Museum will be offering hands-on demonstrations on how the early settlers made Bousillage. Bousillage is a clay mixture that was used to build houses. Be sure to stop by the Pascagoula Library and learn through doing at this one of a kind program. This free program is presented by the Signing River Genealogy – Local History Library. For more information, call 769-3078. The Pascagoula library is located at 3214 Pascagoula Street near downtown.
