A trip back in time to NEJC’s formative days at Shawnee Indian Mission Fall Festival

Historical reenactors danced at the Fall Festival Sunday.

From covered wagons to fur trappers, the Shawnee Indian Mission this weekend took on the look and feel of its former self.

At the state historical site’s annual fall festival, attendees got to see and hear the sights and sounds of life in the mid-1800s, when the Mission served as the focal point of activity in the region.

The Anchovy Fishermen provided a bluegrass background for the festival.
Attendees got a chance to see the furs that trappers would have traded in the area.
