Heritage Days

The Settlers Museum in Atkins will hold its annual Heritage Days event Oct. 4-6.

Friday, Oct. 5, will be children’s day from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. Students get in free to see the re-enactors and hear them talk about the history of the Civil War. Students will also be able to tour through the camps and see the artifacts from that era. 

On Saturday, Oct. 6, the main event, the re-enactment of Stoneman’s Raid, and a vintage baseball game, using the same rules from the 1860s, will be held from 10 a.m. until 5 p.m. There will be vendors, presentations and live music. 

Re-enactors will still be available on Sunday, Oct. 6, and visitors can visit for tours of the campsites.

Start your day with top headlines from our News, Sports, and Opinion pages.
