Learn about the life of a woman on the frontier during this two-day interpretive and interactive event. There will be demonstrations and hands-on learning of 18th century life skills and daily activities in the lives of women. On the frontier, women were frequently called upon to do many things we normally associate only with men. Learn how women grew crops, used flintlock guns, started fires, cast balls for guns, prepared firewood, built fence, threw tomahawks, and did other “manly” things” in addition to their usual activities. We invite women to participate and join in a bit of friendly competition for prizes with newly learned skills if you like. You can still bring along your men to cheer you on.
