Gathering of Descendants at Ft Boonesborough
Fort Boonesborough State Park will be hosting the “Gathering of Descendants” event on June 18-19, 2016
Fort Boonesborough will have a weekend that we hope will remind folks of what homecomings and family reunions are about, with a bit of a twist. We want to welcome everyone who had ancestors who came to Fort Boonesborough in the 18th century and played a part in the early settlement of Kentucky. We will have resources and information available about many of the folks who were here in those early days, ideas of where to find genealogical information, museum exhibits or artifacts from the original fort site, authors on hand to sign books about early days of the fort, the people, and surrounding areas, and ongoing historical interpretation of the daily lives, chores, skills and trades of those who came here during that time.
In addition to a reconstructed fort, the park also has a campground, hiking trails, the Kentucky River Museum, mini-golf, picnic shelters and a gift shop.Fort Boonesborough is located near Richmond. From Interstate 75, take Exit 95 to KY 627. On I-64, exit at Winchester to KY 627.
