Experience life in the 1700s and 1800s as Historic Lyme Village comes alive on Pioneer Days. Over 150 re-enactors, crafters, sutlers, musicians … will engage, inform, and inspire an appreciation and love of history.

The basket weaver, blacksmiths, broom maker, chair caner, cooper, quilters, spinners, woodworker … will be demonstrating and happy to answer questions about their trades. Members of the Richland County Museum will be cooking on the hearth in the Schriner Log House.

Visit the camps of the Colonel Crawford Company, Seneca Muzzleloaders, and Settlers of Yesteryear. Be sure to look up Abe Lincoln, Gen. U.S. Grant, “Stonewall” Jackson … over in the Civil War camp.

The Huron Valley Quilt Guild will have a special display in the Seymour House in memory of Beulah Gilbert. The Post Mark Collectors Club Museum will be open.

Tap your feet to the music of The Country Crossroad Cloggers and Rev. Edgar Shelly’s Lyme Village Pioneers.

Children can experience tin-tapping, quill pen writing, weaving … at the hands-on activity tent. There will be one-room school sessions, story telling, and old fashioned games like graces, stilts and hoop rolling.

Tour the John Wright Mansion with the Victorian Guild. $2/Adults, Children 12 and under free when accompanied by an adult.

Getting hungry? Well, be sure to check out the Carriage House Cafe’s specialties. Rick says he makes and sells the best Home-made Ice Cream. The Daughters of Union Veterans of the Civil War will be offering fried bread.

Shop off trade blankets, at Beeker’s General Store, from craftsmen, sutlers, and the Village Gift Shop at the Visitors Center.

Oh! and take cover if a Civil War skirmish should break out (probably around 4:00).

Historic Lyme Village is an independent, non-profit, volunteer and educational organization. Its support comes from memberships, publications, donations, gifts, Living History Projects and the generosity of individiuals like you.
