Learning and fun were the recurring themes at Fort Boonesborough’s 6th Annual Women on the Frontier Weekend. Character interpretation along with frontier skills were the primary themes. Participants could try their hand at spinning, weaving, knitting and cooking. Native skills like beadworking and fingerweaving were also on the agenda. This weekend has always been devoted to women re-enactors but also draws men, children and lots of visitors.
