Program Description: Did you know that we have 4-8 historical interpreters here to talk to you ANY TIME we are open? During your Explore the Frontier visit, your group will have the chance to forge their own path while discovering all Log Cabin Village has to offer. You can talk to historical interpreters in 19th century clothing while visiting all ten structures on-site. Although demonstrations vary by day, you might see a spinning wheel in action, feel the heat from the blacksmith forge, enjoy a limber jack show, or relax in the herb garden . This option for smaller groups gives you the freedom to create your own tour at your own pace.
