Stepping back into a different century can be an eye-opening experience. Visiting museums and learning about days gone by can give you information about how people used to live and ways they acted. However, attending an actual reenactment can put you within the sights, sounds and smells of yesteryear. If his is something that would interest you, then Logan County has just the event. The 6th Annual Blanket/Trade Days will be held April 4-6, 2014, at the Red River Meeting House in Schochoh. This is a living history event focusing on portrayals of 1750 through 1815. There will be many fun and exciting things to do during this weekend, from camping and trading to eating and worshiping. The following are times when events will take place:
