Pricketts Fort State Park is a living museum. Visit here and travel along with the Pricketts, settlers to the new world trying to survive their harsh surroundings.

The building itself is a reconstructed log fort that served as a refuge from the Native Americans in the area. Watch here as costumed performers act out the daily life of the settlers including keeping safe from Native Americans, trades and domestic acts.

Here visitors can also see the original 19th Century Job Prickett House, Prickett Cemetary, gift shop and visitor center. There are plenty of activities going on throughout the year including bird walks, kids day, music day, quilt basket workshop and plenty more. Bring your children here for a day of fun and learning about the past.
