The theme for the 2017 Women on the Frontier event has been announced by event planners Kristi Heasley and Emily Burnes. along with Fort Manager Bill Farmer
This annual event focuses on the lives lead by women in 18th Century Kentucky. On the frontier, women were frequently called upon to do many things normally associated only with men. Learn how women grew crops, used flintlock guns, started fires, cast balls for guns, prepared firewood, and did other “manly” things” in addition to their usual activities. We invite women to participate and join in a bit of friendly competition for prizes with newly learned skills. You can still bring along your men to cheer you on.
