ECKLEY – A Living History & Civil War Weekend will be held at Eckley Miners’ Village. If you missed the 150th celebration at Gettysburg, come to Eckley on August 17th & 18th and witness the sights and sounds of Patch Town life during the 1860’s.  The event will run from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days.
Enjoy a weekend in the historic mining patch town with small arms & artillery demonstrations, skirmishes, and civil war troop encampments, and see living history scenarios, camp life displays, and period craftsmen. Browse through the Civil War sutlers’ shops. Enjoy great food, and period music by Kent Courtney & David Matsinko. Listen to Helen Torok as she sings and explains the meaning behind old slave songs. Be entertained by the Eckley Players performing “The Ballad of Patrick Sweeney”.
Come and see the historic Catholic and Episcopal Churches, Slate Picker’s House, Doctor Office, the 1880, 1890, & 1940 homes, the beautiful Victorian Sharpe House, Shoe Maker’s Shop, Seamstress Shop, Company Store, and Blacksmith Shop. All the buildings will be opened and staffed with interpreters. Admission to the Village and the Museum are $10 for adults (13-64), $9 for seniors (65+) and $6 for children under 13.
