A window into the past of Powell and Liberty Township
A beautiful day it was for our pioneer encampment on the Martin -Perry House lawn. We stepped back in time with RJ Basista, former reenactor at Williamsburg, who with 3 of his fellow reenactors showed us what life was like ion the early Ohio frontier..
We had a nice turnout of families and children who especially enjoyed the games and demonstrations of frontier life.
We look forward to another 'day in the life of a pioneer' next year.
