Our next Pineywoods Living History event at Salmon Lake will be on January 8, 2022. More details to come! Event location is Salmon Lake Park in Grapeland, Texas.

We will have a Living History during the day to include demonstrations such as period dancing, blacksmithing, family life, weapons demonstration, mountain men skills and much more. There will be a timeline of sorts ranging from the colonial period to 1865. Then, that evening we will host the 10th Anniversary of the Sam Davis New Year’s Ball! Please note, we do plan to require “period” dress for the ball this year, period meaning pre-1865. I want to give you plenty of time to be prepared for this change. Let us know if you have any questions about what to wear to the ball. We will also continue the dance practice during the Living History. So, for those of you that would prefer to wear modern clothing, you can join us then. It also gives you a chance to learn some of the dances we will be doing in the evening.

Coordinating these events each year is something our family thoroughly enjoys doing. All the proceeds from these events are used to perpetuate education-based living history endeavors such as this. They are becoming few and far between. What a blessing to be able to give back to our community and share our love of history and this old-fashioned way of socializing.
