The Civil War comes to life at the Village’s annual Civil War Weekend.

Visitors can tour Union and Confederate camps and meet authentically clad and equipped military and civilian reenactors who will discuss the everyday lives of Civil War soldiers and the roles civilians played in supporting them. The Village, which re-creates a rural community in the 1800s, serves as the perfect backdrop in presenting this event to the public. The battle reenactment begins at 2:00pm.

Visitors will be unable to enter the Village grounds from 1:45 pm to end of the battle. It is strongly encouraged that visitors arrive before 1:30pm. The Village buildings will be closed during the battle and will reopen afterward.
