Schoenbrunn Village hosts living history weekend, July 7-8


NEW PHILADELPHIA, Ohio – Schoenbrunn Village will host a living history weekend July 7-8 to feature various aspects of Indian and white cultures in the Ohio frontier during the late 1700s.

This event offers visitors an opportunity to learn about areas of American history not usually presented by historical reenactments.

The event will be conducted by a group of over 50 experienced re-enactors from throughout the eastern United States whose expertise is 18th-century Native American history.

The event will be conducted Saturday 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Sunday noon to 4 p.m.

Admission fees are $7 for adults, $2.50 for children 6-12, and free for children under 6.

As part of the event, visitors will also see various aspects of historic Indian culture, such as traditional foodways; handcrafts such as quillwork, ribbonwork, and rush mat weaving; and the colorful personal adornment worn by Indians of the late-18th century.

Traditional Indian wigwams will also be constructed in the village by the guest re-enactors to illustrate another type of dwelling found at the Schoenbrunn mission.

Schoenbrunn Village is located two miles southeast of New Philadelphia on state Route 259 (High Ave.). Visitors can use Interstate 77 exit 81.
