    Hello all,

    Geoff Havens of Davidsonville HSP and I are planning a big living history event in March 2019 to celebrate the bicentennial of Arkansas Territory. I’m interested in having some animals present since the history of hogs and cattle in this area runs deep.

    Are any of you aware of someone who raises heritage breed hogs or cattle who might be willing to participate in the event? It’s going to be a 2-day affair held in Davidsonville park. If you have any leads or suggestions, I’d greatly appreciate your help! Please email me at : meredith.mcfadden@arkansas.gov

    Thank you,

    Meredith McFadden, MLIS

    Davidsonville Historic State Park is looking for living historians to interpret areas of Territorial Arkansas (1815-1830) that interest them and for historic crafters to sell their wares or just to demonstrate their craft. The Territorial Fest will be held March 1st and 2nd, 2019. The first day will be for schools and the second day for the general public. They do anticipate having Grant funding to aid in any expenses that arise. If interested, please contact Geoffrey Havens at (870)- 892-4708 or email geoff.havens@arkansas.gov
