Colonial America

July 22 - July 23, 2023

Saturday: 10 am -5 pm

Sunday: 10 am - 4 pm

The East coast was in open revolt in the late 1770s. 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.  Interact with civilians and merchants as they trade their wares, while the garrison keeps a close eye out for the British. Demonstrations will include military and civilian life, period cooking, artisans, and weapons.

Always check for any updates or schedule changes.
