Reenactors in period costumes present life skills that were needed for survival in the early years on the Kentucky frontier. Visitors to a Wolfpen event will discover first hand skills that were an integral part of their heritage. Skills such as: soap and candle making, basket weaving, flintlock rifle building, hide tanning, powder horn making, strap and sash weaving, primitive foods and cooking. These are just a few of the many things to experience at Wolfpen Woods.
