Caesar's Creek Pioneer Village Habitat for History April 21 2012
You looking for something REALLY different, especially if you're want to sneak in some history on the kids and pry them away from their video screens for day? How about some time travel? Back about 200 years far enough? Then you might want to think about volunteering one and all to help out April 21st for the Caesar Creek Pioneer Village Habitat for History event! You know you'll have some great spring weather and you'll be helping out a non-profit organization too, right?
What, you haven't heard of Caesar's Creek Pioneer Village? It's a bit of a secret, but here's the deal: It's a living history museum, a collection of 200 year old cabins, general store and the like to give you a feel of what Ohio life was like in the early 1800s. Located just east of Waynesville at Caesar Creek State Park, you've got easy access just off State Route 73 (one mile east of Waynesville turn south on Clarksville Rd, left on Oregonia Rd, then left at Pioneer Village Rd)
Caesar Creek Pioneer Village is open during daylight hours, but the cabins are only open during event weekends. You can visit the Caesar Creek Pioneer Village website for more information!
Now back to the Caesar Creek Pioneer Village Habitat for History event, what's that about? Well as you might expect with 200 year old buildings, they need some upkeep now and then! The event organizers will keep you fed with breakfast, lunch and dinner, but you're going to earn those meals with some old fashioned hard work! They'll teach you "chinking" (filling in the space between the logs on the cabins), maybe do some roofing, some painting, gardening and general groundskeeping.
They'll have team challenges and some prizes to give away too! And they might even have some music and ghost stories by candlelight at the end of the day!
And if you'd like, you can camp in your tents too! No electric power, but they do have modern bathrooms and showers. And camping is free on Friday and Saturday nights!
So if going old-time has got your interest, contact Karen Ball (Pioneer Village president and event coordinator) at 937-269-7237 or email@example.com. Registrations requested by April 18th!
We hope you have a great time!
