Event Description:
Peek into the past at Paynetown State Recreation Area’s annual Heritage Days, Friday, July 11 through Sunday, July 13.

The highlight of the event is a Heritage Village, where re-enactors portray time periods from 1745 to the 1890s. Visitors can see history brought alive and are encouraged to throw a tomahawk or step inside a trader’s tent.

Monroe Lake’s interpretive staff is also offering hands-on traditional craft programs throughout the weekend. On Friday, you can make a straw ornament, painted glass jar, and yarn doll. Saturday offers a leather tooling session, mini bow-and-arrows craft, and a pioneer cooking demo. Programs wrap up Sunday with herbal sachets and a punched “tin” craft.

There is a gate fee of $5 per in-state vehicle or $7 per out-of-state vehicle.
