Experience the excitement of Frontier Indiana
at the Trail of Courage Sept. 20-21, 2014
Experience the excitement and adventure of Frontier Indiana at the 38th annual Trail of Courage Living
History Festival Sept. 20-21 at Rochester, Indiana. It’s a place where history comes alive, where you can
trace the very footsteps of history, and have a good time doing it. Frontier Indiana comes alive with foods cooked over wood fires, period music and dance, traditional crafts, historic camps and trading, canoe rides on the river, and much more. It is produced by the Fulton County Historical Society. This event combines genealogy of the Potawatomi Indians and the settlers who lived in Fulton County and northern Indiana in the early 1800s with rendezvous events, music and dance on two stages, historic canoe landing and fur trade skit on the Tippecanoe River.
The Trail of Courage will be held at the FCHS grounds four miles north of Rochester on US 31 and
Tippecanoe River. Admission is $7 for adults, $3 for children (6 through 11), and free ages 5 and under.
Hours are Sat. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and Sun. 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Click here for the 2014 schedule of events.
