Wilderness Road State Park is offering a very unique opportunity to its valued guests by offering them a chance to experience the 18th century Virginia Frontier like never before, with a full immersion weekend. Forting Up: A Living History Experiment places guests at Martin’s Station for a full weekend of living on the frontier, dressed in period clothing, and participating in daily activities performed by their ancestors hundreds of years ago.

Imagine yourself living at a colonial fort located beyond the fringes of Virginia's frontier. There is nothing for miles, only a vast wilderness with danger lurking behind the shadows. For a select few, this will become reality as they are immersed into the life of a backwoods settler living at Captain Martin's station in 1775. This program is designed to take living history and experimental archaeology to a new level by giving paying participants a very real 18th century experience. 

This is a first come, first served fee based program and space is limited. Participation fee is $125 per person. Pre-Registration is required. Registration deadline is July 25. Reservations are final and non-refundable.

For more information, or to register, please contact the park office at 276-445-3065.
