Colonial Times – A Day to Remember

The Living History Park in North Augusta will host the 20th Annual Colonial Times – A Day to Remember event on October 15 – 16, 2011. The event will feature demonstrations and living exhibits that show how life was lived in the Colonial era and is free to the public. SC Humanities supported this program through a Mini Grant in August 2011.

Colonial Times – A Day to Remember is designed to allow the public to travel back in time and experience first-hand how their ancestors lived. Re-enactors and living history demonstrators will include Indian traders, a milliner, a tavern keeper, a lace merchant, an alchemist, and more. John Koopman III will portray General George Washington, and Charles Molenda will portray Benjamin Franklin in fun and interactive demonstrations.

The Living History Park is located at 299 W. Spring Grove Avenue, North Augusta. Activities will take place on Saturday, October 15 from 10:00 a.m. – 5:00 p.m. and on Sunday, October 16 from 10:00 a.m.  – 4:00 p.m. More information can be found on the website:
