Pioneer Village Festival! ♥

We recently went to yet another fall festival!  This time in Mitchell, Indiana.  It was a lovely country drive, about an hour away from where we live.   We visited the Pioneer Village, in Spring Mill State Park for the Candlelight Tour Festival!  The Pioneer village is filled with beautiful log cabins, and people were dressed in pioneer clothing.  There was lots of music, and food.  The persimmon pudding was delicious!  Faith really enjoyed listening to the music, and playing in the creek!

“Spring Mill State Park offers a powerful illustration of the link between the natural and cultural worlds. The water flowing from several cave springs led to the founding of an industrial village in the early 1800s. Pioneer entrepreneurs took advantage of a constant water source that never froze, using it to power several gristmills, a wool mill, a saw mill, and a distillery. In turn, pioneer settlers shaped the landscape around the village, clearing land for agriculture and timber.”  

“Founded in 1814, the village contains 20 historic buildings to explore. The centerpiece is the 3-story limestone gristmill, built in 1817, that still grinds cornmeal today. Heritage interpreters portray the year 1863 and demonstrate period crafts.”
