Historic Hanna’s Town to host ‘Frontier Court’ reenactments June 23, 24
If you want frontier justice, first you have to go to frontier court.
Officials from Historic Hanna’s Town will present a period-appropriate reenactment of a frontier court — along with a host of other history-themed activities — June 23-24 at the town, located at 809 Forbes Trail Road, Hempfield.
On June 23, there will be a flag raising at 9:30 a.m., and a colonial garden presentation at 10 a.m.
On June 24, there will be an 18th century church service at 9:30 a.m.
Both days will include militia drilling at 10:45 a.m., presentations on historically-accurate beer making, blacksmithing, midwifery and fife-and-drum performances.
There will be a colonial garden talk at 3 p.m. Beginning at 3:45 p.m., the frontier court will reenact real court cases heard in the Hanna’s Town area between 1773 and 1786.
Both days will wrap up with a recollection of the burning of Hanna’s Town at 4:45 p.m.
