Several demonstrations and reenactmentswill be shown at the 34th Annual Heritage Days on October 3rd and 4th.

TURBOTVILLE – This October 3rd and 4th, the quiet farm nestled behind the Warrior Run School will transform into a vision of yesteryear. It will become a setting, a true scene of years gone by with an inside look of how our ancestors settled this fine land.

The 34th Annual Heritage Days has arrived. During those two days a spectator may take a glimpse at the everyday life of the American settler in a late 1700’s setting. One can view the tools of many old trades such as brick making, or even blacksmithing. They can enjoy seeing an old home set as one would live during the time. Be sure to take a stroll down below the old barn for some tasty vittles, and be sure to catch a sniff of the butchering session starting on Saturday morning.

There will be a fire under the kettle as the boys butcher and demonstrate how it was done. There’s even a chance to witness the havoc and turmoil during the narrated reenactment of the Battle of Fort Freeland. This is the place where history comes alive; it is an interactive and educational experience for all.

There are several demonstrations from tire setting to flax culture, from old time cooking to a simple wash day with Grandma. There will even be a Civil War Era church service on Sunday morning at the Historic Warrior Run Church! There truly is something for everyone here.

The Warrior Run Fort Freeland Heritage Society makes this happen every year, with the help of its volunteers, in an effort to preserve the past and to create an understanding and appreciation or the origins of our nation. Take a walk in the past with at the Warrior Run Fort Freeland Heritage Society’s Annual Heritage Days to be held October 3rd from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. and October 4th from 11 to 5.
