The past will come alive in Mansfield’s South Park this coming weekend as REACH (Richland Early American Center for History) presents its Fifth Annual American Heritage Days.
Join REACH members on October 2 and 3 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.
In addition to the Blockhouse and recently erected cabin, the new blacksmith shop will be open and operating. Bring your appetite as well, as soup beans and cornbread will be available for purchase.
Special events those days include the following:
Saturday October 2
Sunday October 3
