Settlers’ Encampment

May 17 @ 8:00 AM - May 19 @ 5:00 PM EDT

Step back in time to 1750 – 1815 and see how settlers survived.  The weekend is filled with demonstrations and instructions on the necessities of life, ranging from plant dying and food preparation to the fur trade and weapons of that era. See our juried demonstrators living, cooking and behaving as you would have between 1750 and 1812!  No electricity or running water!  It will make you appreciate your ancestors for sure!

Any Military, Civilian or Eastern Woodland Native of the Great Lakes, NW Territory or Middle Group are invited and encouraged to attend this juried event.  There is plenty of acreage to develop a tactical skirmish.  Camp amenities include wood, water, straw, portable and indoor restrooms.  Thursday set-up for Friday School Day.  For more information contact Cheryl Daniel at 419-551-1134;  Or e-mail the village at villageauglaize@gmail.com
