 Release Date: July 7, 2014
From the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency: History Alive at the Johnston Farm: "Nineteenth Century Life at the Johnston Farm" (Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, July 11, 12, 13, 2014)
This weekend history will jump off the pages of the past at the Johnston Farm & Indian Agency with History Alive! This Friday, July 11 at 7:00 PM & Saturday July 12 at 7:00 PM come and see Living History scholars Karen Vuranch as Mary Draper Ingles and Doug Wood as Mankiller Ostenaco. Both scholars have thoroughly researched the story of their characters to create a great look into the life of individuals from two very different cultures. Performances by both scholars will be under the tent at the Johnston Farm - bring your own lawn chair.

At the conclusion of each performance, the scholars will answer questions from the audience; first as the historical character, and then as the scholar. This gives you the opportunity to delve even deeper into the past.

Presentations will be preceded by music each evening. Food will be available both evenings on site. There will also be period camps and demonstrators to add to the atmosphere of the weekend.

On Saturday at 1:00 PM both scholars will conduct a workshop on creating a living history presentation in the Education Center in the Indian and Canal Museum..

Johnston Farm & Indian Agency will be open regular hours Friday - 10:00 AM-5:00 PM, Saturday & Sunday Noon-5:00 PM with Johnston Home Tours and canal boat rides all three days.

Regular site admission $8.00/adults, $4.00/children 6-12, after 5:00 PM each day, $10.00 per car, free to Johnston Farm Friends members
