Caesar's Creek Pioneer Village

Introduction:

Welcome to the Website for the Pioneer Village. Our website is still going through a few growing pains so it is possible you will find some sections a little short on information. Rest assured though we are working hard to get every section updated and get as much information as you could possibly want on the website. We are going to be putting a lot of information about the History of the Village and you will be able to see how we have grown over the years also. If you have comments, questions or kudos, feel free to drop us a line.

 

Upcoming Events:

2018 Schedule has now been finalized and is on our Events Page (some changes may occur with events being added like Paranormal but nothing should be removed). If you have an idea for an event that you think would be great for the Village feel free to email us. Also we are a fantastic venue for Weddings and Family Gatherings and the Village is available to be rented. Drop us an email and we will be glad to work with you on planning your event.





Civil War Union Training Camp

Date: April 7th and 8th

Time: 10:00 am to 4:00 pm

Learn about life of a Union Soldier during the Civil War as you take part in the training. 

You will be able to witness what life was like for Soldiers during the Civll War while they were in training camp getting ready to go to battle. Walk through the camp and see how they lived and they trained including firing demonstrations. These camps were not easy living for the soldiers and many of them perished here before even reaching a battle field. 

This is an event that will appeal to both the young and the old as you will be able to see history actually come to life. Most Civil War events concentrate on just the battles but we strive to bring the history alive. You will be able to witness what their every day life was like in the training camp during the civil war along with living history displays and demonstrations and watch as they carry out their company level and above drills. 

The kids will be fascinated to see the soldiers in period dress along with the weapons of the time and it will give them a chance ot be up close and personal with people who have a passion for the civil war and can bring the history that they read in their books to life. Everyone will be fascinated by seeing what life was truly like in those days.

Friday the 13th Public Paranormal Investigation

Date: April 13th and 14th

Time: 7:00 pm to 2:00 am

What could be more perfect than doing a Paranormal Investigation on Friday the 13th? Come join us for the first time we will be investigating on a Friday the 13th. We will be going into at least one building that we have only investigated a couple of times before and it has proven to be pretty active. 

This event is not weather dependent so no matter what the weather, we will still investigate. We will have a fire going in the Bullskin Inn as usual and if it happens to still be a bit chilly at night in April then we will be sure to have it going pretty strong (we were able to keep everyone warm for our investigation in January). 

There will be a home made dinner for everyone and we will begin investigating after everyone is done eating dinner.

During the dinner, everyone will have the opportunity to talk with our investigators, get to know each other, and we will play some of the evidence which we have gathered over the past year of us investigating at the Village. We will also play some of the evidence which has been recorded by our Investigators from other investigations outside of the Village so everyone will have an idea of what could be found. There will also be members of the Village available to tell you the history of the Village itself and all of the buildings in the Village and to answer any questions you may have about the Pioneer Village.

Time: 8:00 am to 5:00 pm

Help as we work to preserve and restore the village buildings and grounds. Work available for all ages. Bring your family and friends. We will be using this day to do a bunch of Spring Cleaning and to get the Village ready for the year. We will be doing projects both big and small so there will be tasks for everyone of all ages and we would love to see you all,

Come out and give us a hand and we will also be more than willing to take some time to answer any questions you may have about the village. This is a great opportunity to also see if you would like to become a member and join us in the ongoing preservation of history. Join us for a few hours or all day

 



* Metal Detecting at the Village *

As there have been an influx of inquiries about metal detecting at the village, we decided to post a message here about it. As the Pioneer Village is located on State land (we rent the land from the state), we abide by their rules which state that the only place any metal detecting can take place is on the sandy portion of the beach at the Public Beach Area. All other metal detecting is a prohibited activity.
