The event provides seven to eleven year old children the chance to "step back in time" and learn skills of the 1800's. Children are split into groups of trappers, traders, laborers, blacksmiths and carpenters, Indians, and soldiers. Adult living history historians guide the children through normal life and work routines of the 1840's fur trading post. Go to the Calendar page for more information.
