Annual Pioneer Day to be held Oct. 10 in Shreveport

The Pioneer Heritage Center on the campus of LSUS will hold the 19th annual Pioneer Day on Saturday, October 10, from 10:00 am – 4:00 pm.

Started in 1996 as an independent study project, Pioneer Day was established as a way to create an awareness of the LSUS Pioneer Heritage Center, which offers tours to the public. From that small first event it has grown by leaps and bounds, now offering a showcase for local folklife groups, individuals and living historians.

During your visit, you can visit seven different historic buildings and see folklife demonstrations like: blacksmithing, quilting, and chair caning. Visitors will learn about Louisiana native plants and animals and Caddo Indian tools, see living historians and much more.

Join us for Pioneer Day, and experience a unique opportunity to see the historical side of what LSUS has to offer!

For more information, please contact Marty Young at Marty.Young@lsus.edu, or 318-797-5339. Admission is $2 per person, but children under 5 get in free.  All proceeds go toward future restoration projects at the Pioneer Heritage Center.
