Frontier Spirit 1799 at Alley Park
Sep 24, Sep 25, 2016

11am - 4pm Sat/Sun

Experience the trials and tribulations that the first settlers in the Ohio Territory endured as they fought for and carved out a home. Frontier Spirit 1799 showcases the events and lives of these settlers featuring 5 or 6 scenes from early Fairfield County in an outdoor theater. You will laugh, cry, and learn of the price paid for what we now know as Lancaster Ohio.

There is Fun for the Whole Family. Frontier Spirit is a step back into time that can be enjoyed by all ages. A tent village shows the life of the early settlers with demonstrations by skilled craftsmen of cooking, soap making, blacksmithing, spinning, weaving and more. The large marquis tent provides a place for music by many musicians on various period instruments, speeches by local dignitaries and various skits. Games and activities for children are also part of the village entertainment.

Concessions are available at very reasonable prices, with snacks, drinks and food - including bean soup cooked in iron kettles over an open fire.

A church service by a circuit preacher is featured at 9am on Sunday morning. Bring the family and enjoy a little bit of living history. In case of rain the theater may close but the village is always open.
