This is an immersion event during which visitors encounter living historians from the year 1868. Everything these folks will know or talk about is from one of the hardest periods in American and especially southern history. Folks had no money, as many had invested all of their money in the Confederate cause. Former slaves, recently being freed, now faced a future without a job as they were competing against foreign immigrants from countries where many were escaping tyranny and hunger. Many cattlemen were trying to rebuild herds, and farmers were trying to scratch out a subsistence living. Temperance marchers tried to reduce the consumption of alcohol. Come see, hear and feel what life was like during a hard period when this farm first came into existence.
