Come join us for Pioneer Day at Travelers Rest State Historic Site. Historical demonstrations will be going on all day from 10 a.m.-2 p.m. Blacksmithing, black-powder demonstrations. Visit a stage coach that you can climb up in and snap a photo. Candle-dipping, spinning, weaving, fur trappers, cornhusk dolls, basketry, historic foodways, corn-shelling. Visit with Miss Meeley Jarrett. Come take a tour through a 230-year-old stage coach inn and walk in the footsteps of the families who lived there and the travelers who called it home for a night. Walk the grounds and see the Jarrett buggy and many more historic structures that grace the landscape. Hungry? No problem! Grab some boiled peanuts or fresh pork rinds and sit a spell.
