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:

2017 Schedule is now on the Events Page. 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 Training Camp

April 29th, 2017 - 10:00 am to 5:00 pm
April 30th, 2017 - 10:00 am to 5:00 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.  

Cost:
$5 per person



* 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.
