It’s springtime in the mountains again, and the members of the Daniel Boone Wilderness Trail Association are turning their attention from shoveling snow to preparing for our annual Frontier Muster and Trade Faire
Walk in the footsteps of history
The Frontier Muster and Trade Faire will be held on April 18-19, 2015, at the Blockhouse located atNatural Tunnel State Park:
Saturday, April 18, the event is 10 a.m. – 8:30 p.m.
Sunday, April 19, 11 a.m. – 3 p.m.
Hide tanning, fireside cooking, salt making, soap making, flax processing, spinning, weaving, fire starting, blacksmithing, and other frontier skills will be demonstrated by living history interpreters.
In addition, you will be able to attend Cherokee Language workshops and hear slave narratives and songs.
On Sunday morning, you are invited to attend a church service featuring voices and reflections from the point of view of the settlers, Native Peoples, and slaves on this historically significant Trail, followed by fellowship and a frontier trial such as one over which Capt. Anderson might have presided.
