The 12th Annual Women on The Frontier at Fort Boonesborough State Park was a real “Hands on events” for both visitors and participants. Above everyone lands a hand in building a frame for a wigwam in the Indian village behind the fort. The theme of Food and Shelter took participants from the garden inside the fort to this area behind the fort. Everyone was intent on the projects, listening, learning and participating.
