Heritage Days, an annual event at Monroe Lake’s Paynetown SRA, returns to the property on Friday, July 13 through Sunday, July 15.
The highlight of the event is a small Heritage Village that sets up in the Lakeview picnic area, next to the swimming beach. Reenactors portray different time periods from 1745 to the 1890s and invite you to wander through their camps.
The Heritage Village is open from 4 to 8 p.m. on Friday, July 13, 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. on Saturday, July 14, and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Sunday, July 15.
The naturalist staff will also offer historically-themed kids programs and crafts on Friday and Saturday to complement the Heritage Village.
