MCCD’s Trail of History this weekend
RINGWOOD – The McHenry County Conservation District’s annual Trail of History will run from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday and Sunday at Glacial Park, 6316 Harts Road.
Attendees will witness what life was like in the Northwest Territory from 1670 to 1850. Each step along the one-mile trail to the encampment takes participants back in time. The re-enactment features more than 200 interpreters from across the country who demonstrate the crafts and trades from early settler days.
Included on the trail are a frontier school, a log cabin, a Métis Village, a voyageur landing, military tactics and Dr. Balthazar’s traveling medicine show. Visitors can dress up in pioneer clothes, make cornhusk dolls, try their hand at dipping candles or working a two-man saw. A variety of musicians, dancers, jugglers and more will entertain. Vendors will offer authentic culinary treats and souvenirs.
