Encampment tomorrow at historic state park
Re-enactors will take their positions tomorrow during a frontier encampment at the Oconee Station State Historic Site near Walhalla. For those who go, it’s a chance to imagine the period after the Revolutionary War when the Oconee Station was a frontier outpost. The program, 10 am to 3 pm, is appropriate for all ages and will include demonstration of muskets, weaponry common in that time. Oconee Station is a stone blockhouse named for the Irish immigrant William Richards who ran an Indian trading post at the turn of the 19th century. The building is part of 210 acres that contain a fishing pond and a network of trails that access the 60-foot waterfall Station Cove Falls.
