FUN FOR THE WHOLE FAMILY 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.

Concessions are available at very reasonable prices, with snacks, drinks and food-including bean soup cooked in iron kettles over an open fire. The village is open from 11:00 am to 4:00 pm both days. A church service by a circuit preacher is featured at 9:00 am on Sunday morning. Bring the family and enjoy a little bit of living history.
