Pine Castle Pioneer Days 2019

February 23 - February 24

$5

Those early settlers in the area that we know as Pine Castle must have found life to be very challenging. Pretty much a wilderness, the area required them to work hard to tame the land and carve out places to make a home for their families. When young Will Harney arrived shortly after the War Between the States, he found it lightly settled with farmsteads here and there. As with others life demanded a hard price. Will lost his young wife soon after arriving but he was determined to make it a home for his family. He constructed a building of native pine which resembled a castle and thus it became a landmark for all those travelling in the area. The area soon took on the name of Pine Castle. Even way up until the middle part of the 20th century, life was simple and hard. But those hardy peoples did take some time to rest and enjoy themselves with homemade entertainment and neighborly visits.

Two days of fun and activities.
