The past will come alive in Mansfield’s South Park this October as REACH (Richland Early American Center for History) presents its Fourth Annual American Heritage Days.

Join REACH members on October 3 and 4 from 10 AM to 4 PM to discover what it was like to live in early America during the 18th and 19th centuries from living historical reenactors.

Throughout the day there will be crafts, trades, demonstrations, and activities, including blacksmithing, 18th century bagpipe demonstrations, games and children’s activities, open hearth cooking demonstrations, and civilian and military reenactments.

Bring your appetite as well, as soup beans and cornbread will be available for purchase.

Special events those days include the following:

  • 10:15 AM – Flag raising at The Blockhouse
  • 11:.00 AM, 12 Noon, 2:00 PM, 3:00 PM — Military drills and Musket firing demonstrations
  • 12:30 PM and 2:30 PM — Cannon firing
  • 1:00 PM to 1:30 PM — Battle reenactment
