Fort Harrison's Third Annual Colonial Trades Fair
was held on June 23rd.

 The Board of Directors of Fort Harrison. Inc. would like to thank all our craftsmen who volunteered their time and talents to educate and entertain our visitors!

New additions to the fair this year included Corn Husk Dolls and Colonial Toys, by Susan Smith and family of Montezuma.
Our visitors learned about early 19th century medicine, courtesy of Dr. Peachy Harrison, interpreted by Dan Michael of Bridgewater.
Another great addition this year was the new food booth, sponsored by New Beginnings Church Middle School Youth Group. 
The Shenandoah Colonial Dancers were on hand to teach dancing to our visitors  and provide some great 18th century music!
Of course, our talented tradesmen were on hand to demonstrate their skills of the past.
