Indiana: Spring Mill SP hosts Living History Weekend

Step back in history and experience the sights and sound of pioneer life with Spring Mill State Park’s Living History Weekend, May 25 and 26.

Visit encampments, watch as meals are prepared, and find out about camp life during both days of the event. Tour the buildings and see spinning, weaving, leather working, and woodworking. You can also play pioneer games on the mill lawn.

Take pictures with Civil War re-enactors, then watch at 2:30 p.m. as they engage in a Civil War skirmish, complete with cannons fired at the opposite side at Sycamore Shelter, just off the Pioneer Village parking lot. The Pioneer Village will be open until 5 p.m. but visitors will be able to visit with re-enactors all day.

There will be a pioneer memorial service at the Hamer Cemetery on May 27 at 2 p.m.
