Colonial America

July 16 - July 17, 2022

Saturday: 10:00 am -5:00 pm

Sunday: 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

The east coast was in open revolt in 1775.  But what was happening on the frontier?  Take a trip to a trading post in what was called the “Northwest Territory” at the time.  Witness what it was like to live in a post garrisoned by troops of the Continental army.  Watch as merchants trade their wares while the garrison keeps a close eye out for the British. Demonstrations will include military and merchant life, period cooking, period artisans, and weapons.
