A cross cultural experience in three perspectives – Native Americans, westward expansion Pioneers and African-Americans traveling the Underground Railroad – will be the focus of Settler’s Celebration, Saturday, Sept. 25 and Sunday, Sept. 26, in Indian Mound Reserve on St. Rt. 42 just south of Cedarville. Hosted by Greene County Parks, Settler’s Celebration is a fun and family-friendly event about the cultures of the area’s early inhabitants. Period dress is encouraged and visitors can participate in various arts and craft demonstrations and life skills like candlemaking, churning butter and pressing cider. There will also be wagon rides as well as vendors offering foods and goods. Guided hikes to Adena Mound and the Pollock Works nearby are also available. Event times are: Saturday, 11 to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 12 to 5 p.m. Admission to Settler’s Celebration is free with a $5 parking donation.
