July 4th Celebration

Join us as we celebrate the birth of our country on July 4th from 10am-2pm. Our celebration includes a reading from the Declaration of Independence by the Mayor of North Augusta. You can tour the historic buildings throughout the Park and visit with reenactors as they bring history to life.  We encourage visitors to show their patriotic spirit by dressing up.  You are welcome to bring your patriotic pet as long as they are well-behaved and on a leash.

October

Colonial Times: A Day to Remember

For over 30 years, the Living History Park has brought our colonial past (from 1735 to 1785) to life through demonstrations and living exhibits. Historical interpretors will be available to answer questions throughout the park. You can play colonial games, sing songs, and sample baked goods! Try your hand at colonial dancing or see if you are fit to join the militia!

November

Christmas in the Backcountry

Come to the park to see how the Colonial villagers would celebrate the holidays. Father Christmas will be there to visit and take pictures with the children, visitors can make winter feeders for the birds and children can enjoy free cider and cookies while they listen to stories read by reenactors.  This is a one day event.
