Come and experience the trials and tribulations that the first settlers in the Ohio Territory endured as they fought for and carved out a home. Frontier Spirit 1799 showcases the events and lives of these settlers featuring five or six scenes from early Fairfield county in an outdoor theater and trail. You’ll laugh, cry, and learn of the price paid for what we now know as Lancaster, Ohio.

Frontier Spirit is a step back into time that can be enjoyed by all ages. A tent village shows the life of the early settlers with demonstrations by skilled craftsmen of cooking, soap making, blacksmithing, spinning, weaving and more. The large marquis tent provides a place for music by many musicians on various period instruments, speeches by local dignitaries and various skits. Games and activities for children are also part of the village entertainment.
