Get a first-hand look at the everyday lives of 18th century frontier traders during Frontier Heritage Weekend.

The 18th century frontier was a dangerous and difficult place to live. Discover the skills necessary to survive and learn how American Indians and European settlers borrowed ideas from each other to build a better life in the Western Pennsylvania wilderness.

Demonstrations include:

  • Costumed European traders with authentic goods;
  • A tomahawk throwing station where visitors can try their hand at tossing an important tool and weapon on the 18th century frontier;
  • Blackpowder firearms;
  • Pit sawing (turning logs into lumber for construction) and carpentry;
  • Musket volleys;
  • Open-hearth cooking demonstrations;
  • Much more!

Special hours: Saturday and Sunday 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Frontier Heritage Weekend programs and demonstrations are included with Meadowcroft admission.
