LIGONIER — Stone’s Trace Historical Society is hosting its first Living History Day June 23 from 9 a.m. until 3 p.m., rain or shine.

Families can come to Stone’s Trace and see demonstrations of things people did in their day-to-day living before 1870. Music will be played and samples of the food that is made that day will be available. The food will be items that were made in that time period.

Some demonstrations that will be available are candle dipping, how people planted seeds, sewing, rug hooking, herb planting, wool spinning and more. Kids activities will be available as well. There will be games and possibly face painting.

This event is free, and people can camp if they would like.

“They can get a taste of what the festival is like,” Stone’s Trace Historical Society President Jim Hossler said.

Those who have questions about the society’s events or are interested in becoming a member of the historical society can contact Hossler at 574-529-3693 or
