Draw Your Own Cretan Labyrinth

The #Cretanlabyrinth design has been around for thousands and thousands of years. The ancient Greeks used to draw the seven-course unicursal design in jars, on walls and even used it on their early coins. It’s so simple that even YOU can draw your own Cretan labyrinth! Just follow these 9 easy steps. I used graph paper to help make the lines nice and even, but you can draw the labyrinth anywhere!

The History of Mazes - Part 1
Labyrinths and mazes have delighted audiences for thousands and thousands of years. As with any creative venture, there are endless possibilities, limited only by the imagination of the maze designer. From underground tunnels and secret passages, to hedges and garden pathways, to cornfields and straw bales, mazes have appeared all over the world in a variety of settings.

The History of Cherry Crest

The history of Cherry Crest can be traced all the way back to the late 1600s, to a woman named Marie Ferree and her family, who traveled to the United States to escape religious persecution.

The New World

With the issue of Louis XIV’s Edict of Fontainebleau in 1685, the Huguenots lost the right to practice their religion without persecution from the French state. Wealthy silk-manufacturer Daniel Ferree, his wife Marie Warenbauer Ferree, and their six children joined the thousands of Protestants who escaped to the surrounding countries. When her husband died in 1708, Marie Ferree gathered up her children and moved to London, England, where she sought out William Penn and arranged for a 2000-acre plot of land in the New World. The Ferree’s landed in New York in late 1708—Marie and her children, Daniel Jr., Catherine, Mary, John, Abraham, Phillip and Jane, as well as Catherine’s husband Isaac LeFevre, and Daniel Jr.’s wife. The finally made it to the Pequea Valley in 1712, where they settled in the area that is now Cherry Crest Adventure Farm and the surrounding land.
