Shawnee Prairie Log House and Blacksmith Shop Open

A volunteer heats the metal before hammering it into shape.
Ever wonder what life was like for the early European settlers on the Ohio frontier? Imagine living in a log house every day or working in a blacksmith shop to earn your living. Starting on May 20th and on Saturdays throughout the summer from 1pm to 4pm at Shawnee Prairie Preserve west of Greenville on State Route 502 come visit the settlers and blacksmith as volunteers demonstrate what life was like here 200 years ago. Hear the hammer and anvil ring, listen to tales of life on the frontier, and imagine that the modern world doesn’t exist for an afternoon.
