Last June saw the first “Gathering of Descendants” at Fort Boonesborough.It was a family weekend at Fort Boonesborough and set up in the center of the fort were area historical and genealogical groups. Visitors could explore information about their family history, purchase books, speak with authors and learn more about life in their ancestors day.
The fort staff is busy finalizing plans and the groups that will attend this 2016 event. So if you know your genealogy or just suspect that your family came through Boonesborough or the local area in the late 18th century this is the perfect weekend to explore your past.
The Fort Boonesborough Foundation will be selling lunch and concessions both days along with tshirts. totes, books and more.
