Scenes From The Pioneer Fest
The Boone County Autumn Pioneer Festival gives visitors a glimpse of early settler life in Northern Illinois each September. I thoroughly enjoy spending an afternoon walking through the displays, dreaming about what life was like back in ‘the day.’ There’s always so much to see and I rarely make it all the way through the festival before I need to tend to my own homestead.
Last week I shared photos of some of the myriad of Cast Iron Cookware that I drooled over. This week I’m sharing more photos of pioneer life, from blacksmiths to pioneer kitchens. I hope you enjoy these scenes from the Autumn Pioneer Festival!
