WWI Encampment Weekend

The Ma & Pa Railroad Heritage Village celebrates the opening of its 2017 season by hosting its 10th annual World War I Encampment.

The Ma & Pa Railroad Heritage Village at Muddy Creek Forks celebrates the opening of its 2017 season by hosting its 10th annual World War I Encampment. The event runs Saturday, June 3rd, 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Sunday June 4th, 1 to 5 p.m. In addition to World War I re-enactors the village, which is a living history museum that depicts life a century ago, features an early 20th century general store, roller mill, grain elevator, fertilizer warehouse, and bank barn. Historically trained, costumed interpreters add a unique flavor to the experience as they interact with guests who visit the village. Five mile motorcar excursion train rides along scenic Muddy Creek are also offered for a small charge.

Over a dozen WWI re-enactors in authentic uniforms from several countries (including Germany and the United States) will camp on the museum grounds (weather permitting) with period tents, equipment, supplies and armaments. The re-enactors are very knowledgeable, providing accurate interpretations of the various armies all while easily interacting with visitors. A display of WWI artifacts will be available to view on the second floor of the A.M. Grove General Store in the historic village. The event occurs rain or shine.
