Mounds State Park set for Pioneer Day

ANDERSON — Step back to the late 1800s at Mounds State Park, 4306 Mounds Road, at the annual Pioneer Day on Saturday, Oct. 5.

The event will run from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. outside the historic Bronnenberg home. Scheduled demonstrations include flint knapping with expert John Suko at 11 a.m., and Dutch oven cooking with assistant property manager Dustin Clark at 1 p.m.

Stop by anytime between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. to tour the Bronnenberg home, sample popcorn made over a fire, and view antique tools and bicycle collector Rex Upshaw’s 1880s' Columbia High Wheeler. Kids activities include butter making, yarn doll crafts, pioneer dress-up and old-fashioned chores such as laundry and lawn mowing.

The Friends of Mounds State Park group will be selling drinks and souvenirs.

The event is free, though normal park entrance fees of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle apply.
