Fort McKavett: 19th Century Trades at Fort McKavett

April 26, 2014 - 9:00am to 4:30pm

All Hard Work Brings Profit: 19th Century Trades

Join living historians as they demonstrate trades that would have been common in Central Texas in the mid-19th century. We will have tailors, shoemakers, carpenters, blackmiths, trunkmakers, and even more.

Try your own hand at some of the trades. There will be hands on demonstrations throughout the day.
