Falls of the Ohio State Park will celebrate the life and times of George Rogers Clark on June 22 and 23.

George Rogers Clark Days will run from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day at the George Rogers Clark Home Site, 1102 W. Harrison Avenue, Clarksville.

Wes and Donna Griffin will perform period music on the hammered dulcimer on June 22 from 1 to 3 p.m. Re-enactors portraying members of the Clark Family and 18th- and 19th-century militiamen, surveyors and frontiersmen will appear throughout the event. The event also will include atlatl throwing (American Indian spear throwing), vendors with period crafts, speakers, musicians, children’s activities and more.

Special tours of the Clark and McGee cabins and gardens will be given. The McGee cabin was the home of Ben and Venus McGee who were Clark’s indentured servants. The cabin represents one of the first freed-slave communities in the Northwest Territory, Guinea Bottoms, which was established around 1812.

The Clark Home Site is part of the Falls of the Ohio State Park.
