Caesar's Creek Pioneer Village

Introduction:

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:

2018 Schedule will soon be on the Events Page. If you have an idea for an event that you think would be great for the Village feel free to email us. Also we are a fantastic venue for Weddings and Family Gatherings and the Village is available to be rented. Drop us an email and we will be glad to work with you on planning your event.




Harvest Festival and Fall Gathering

October 14th & 15th, 2017

Time: 10:00 AM to 4:00 PM both Days

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. 

Admission: $5 per person (Bring a bag of individually wrapped Treat candy and get Free admission for one person)

Paranormal Investigation at the Village

October 28th, 2017

Time: 6:30 pm to 2:00 am

This will be our 2nd Annual Halloween Weekend Paranormal Investigation at the Village. Last year, this weekend was the first Public Paranormal Investigation we had conducted at the Village and it was a great time.

There will be a home made dinner for everyone and we will begin investigating after dinner is completed.

During the dinner, everyone will have the opporutnity to talk with our investigators, get to know each other, and we will play some of the evidence which we have gathered over the past year of us investigating at the Village. We will also play some of the evidence which has been recorded by our Investigators from other investigations outside of the Village so everyone will have an idea of what could be found. There will also be members of the Village available to tell you the history of the Village itself and all of the buildings in the Village.

The investigation will include:
* Home cooked dinner prepared by some of the Volunteers at the Village
* Use of our equipment. For this investigation we will have cameras set up in one of the buildings, K2s, Mel Meters, Flashlights, Rem Pods, SB7 Spirit Box, Laser Grids, Recording Devices
* We will also be taking breaks throughout the night for snacks and water
* All evidence will be shared through a website which will be set up specifically for this event

* Fundraising for the Village - Raffles *

We are running a couple of different raffles to raise money for the restoration of the Toll House Cabin. You can find all of the details on our Raffle Page.



* 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.
