Wolfpen Woods Pioneer Village gives visitors a chance to experience the late 1700s.
The event, set for Saturday and Sunday, will include restored log buildings and historical re-enactors, all reflecting life during the time of the frontier. Native American re-enactors will be in their encampment portraying their way of life and their interaction with pioneers.
Activities include a walk along a historic trail with characters such as Hokoesqua, principal chief of the Shawnee tribe; Henry and James Skaggs, James Fraley and Mathias Harmon, Daniel Boone and Mrs. William Robert Leslie.
Most buildings in the villSage will be accessible to visitors and the outdoor bake oven, where fresh bread will be available for sampling, will be operating.
Vendors will be on site and Wolfpen Woods Store will sell souvenirs, bottled water and soft drinks.
