Caesar's Creek Pioneer Village


Welcome to the Website for the Pioneer Village. Our website is still going through a few growing pains so it is possible you will find some sections a little short on information. Rest assured though we are working hard to get every section updated and get as much information as you could possibly want on the website. We are going to be putting a lot of information about the History of the Village and you will be able to see how we have grown over the years also. If you have comments, questions or kudos, feel free to drop us a line.


Upcoming Events:

The 2019 schedule is now up although we don't have the pages describing the events all updated yet. Look for those to come in the next few days. We do have details about the first event of 2019 on the Events page.

Civil War at the Pioneer Village

Date: September 28th & 29th 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

We will bring you historically accurate speakers around the Village along with period authentic re-enactors. This event truly is set apart from others with our period authentic buildings giving the setting for the re-enactors.

The kids and adults alike will love seeing History come to life as the battle still rages on at the Village. All participants will be in authentic gear and will be re-enacting battles and transporting you back to the Civil War.

Harvest Festival & Fall Gathering

Date: October 19th & 20th 10:00 am - 5:00 pm daily

Celebrate the harvest as the village is preparing for winter. Take part in the activities of the early 1800's.

Share in our annual event as the Village members all prepare for the coming winter. Learn about how the Pioneers would prepare their cabins and their food storages for the coming winter months. This would be a period of everyone coming together and sharing their resources and also a great opportunity for traders to come through selling their wares.

We will have demonstrations showing Pioneer life and you can learn from our Village members all of the different things which they would have to do in order to be prepared for the Winter months in Ohio. We will also be doing staining of clothes using the Walnuts from around the Village.

If you have never been to the Village during the Fall months it is truly a total transformation as the days and nights start to turn cooler and the leaves fall off of the trees. The Village is truly a totally different experience during every season as you get to see it in a completely different light.

Trick or Treat at the Pioneer Village

October 26th 3:00 pm - 6:00 pm

Our cabins will be open and decorated for this fun trick or treat event (one of the few times we will decorate with modern day decorations). These cabins had years and years of kids going door to door trick or treating and they still love to hear the laughter and see the kids in costume. Kids and adults both can show up at the Village in their favorite costume and go door to door in a safe environment trick or treating through Village.

If it happens to be a bit chilly, some (or maybe all) of the cabins will also have a nice warm fire going but you can guarantee you will be greeted at every one by one of our wonderful volunteers and a treat for our favorite trick or treaters.

The kids will have a great time getting dressed up in their costumes and being able to go door to door around the Village. Don't worry as all of our House Parents will have a delicious treat waiting for your little one as they trick or treat.


* Metal Detecting at the Village *

As there have been an influx of inquiries about metal detecting at the village, we decided to post a message here about it. As the Pioneer Village is located on State land (we rent the land from the state), we abide by their rules which state that the only place any metal detecting can take place is on the sandy portion of the beach at the Public Beach Area. All other metal detecting is a prohibited activity.
