Frontier encampment remindful of late 18th century life
(2/11/19) Frontier encampment remindful of late 18th century life
At a state park near Walhalla, this Saturday is the time for the annual Frontier Encampment. The 210-acre Oconee Station State Historic Site will welcome the public between 10 am and 3 pm to imagine life immediately after the American Revolution when Oconee Station was a frontier outpost. Re-enactors will interpret life for the frontiersmen of the bygone era—including musket and cooking demonstrations. The program is appropriate for all ages. Located off highway 11, the park contains two historic structures: a stone blockhouse used as an outpost and a house used as an Indian trading post.
