FT. ATKINSON FINAL LIVING HISTORY EVENT TO BE OCT. 4, 5
Ft. Calhoun, Neb. -- The final living history program of the season at Ft.
Atkinson State Historical Park will be the weekend of Oct. 4-5, when
volunteer interpreters portray both military and civilian life at the
reconstructed 1820s fort.
Park visitors will be able to shop at the sutlers store, help churn
butter, see military demonstrations, and participate in the chore of
laundering uniforms. Whether watching the soldiers receive liquor rations
on Saturday or joining in the church call on Sunday, visitors will enjoy
the chance to step back in time.
Activities will be 10 a.m. - 5 p.m. both days. No admission is charged,
but a valid Nebraska State Park Entry Permit is required on all vehicles
and can be purchased at the Visitor Center on the grounds for $2.50.
Ft. Atkinson is located just east of Hwy 75 in Ft. Calhoun.
