(Ninety Six, SC) – Step back into History with your family this Holiday season at Ninety Six National Historic Site’s “A Backcountry Holiday” on Saturday, November 28, from 1:00 pm until 4:00 pm.  The past will come to life as you walk into the historic Logan Log Cabin, where costumed interpreters will be demonstrating Backcountry life in the 1700s.

Take a break from turkey, football games, and shopping malls to enjoy light refreshments in the park’s historic cabin, which is only open to the public during special events.  Relax by the fire and listen to Colonial Holiday music played on the hammer dulcimer.  Visit the Park’s VisitorCenter for unique gifts.  Children can take part in Colonial games and decoration star ornaments to take home.       

The event is free and visitors are invited to spend an hour or spend the day.  Activities are subject to change.  Ninety Six National Historic Site is part of the National Park Service and one of only seven National Park units within the state.  The Park is open daily 9:00 am to 5:00 pm (closed only New Years’ Day, Thanksgiving Day, and Christmas Day).  The Park is located two miles south of Ninety Six on SC Highway 248.  Contact the park for details at (864) 543-4068 or visit the park’s website at www.nps.gov/nisi.
