We invite you to step into the past! Come see a living portrayal of how people lived before 1840. The event is spread over 325 acres and includes approximately 1000 participants in period clothing and hundreds of historically correct dwellings. Visitors will enjoy a program of music and games and see artisans demonstrating crafts such as flint knapping, broom making, blacksmithing, soap making, weaving and more. There will be vendors for food and primitive merchandise for sale.
This annual event helps provide scholarships to local high school students as well as other educational and learning opportunities for the public.
