Smart Living Weekly – April 24, 2019



Travel Back in Time to ‘The Gathering’

Right in Our Region:
A rare opportunity to step back in time and experience pre-1850s life in our region is coming up April 27 & 28 during The Gathering event at Macktown Living History Center, 2221 Freeport Road in Rockton, Ill. You’ll meet re-enactors portraying traders and trappers, French voyageurs, Native Americans and early settlers, including Stephen Andrew Mack Jr. and his wife, Mary Hononegah, founders of a once-thriving community named Pecatonic, also called Mack’s Town or Macktown. You can try your hand at the skills settlers depended upon for survival and sample food and drink made in that era.
