Important information for our School Day:
Mississinewa 1812 is a living history event. Our reenactors are there to answer questions and demonstrate life as it was during the year of 1812. Educational demonstrations take place throughout the day in different areas. Students are encouraged to ask questions.
If bringing sack lunches, please have them stored together in boxes or coolers with your school’s information on them. They will be collected at the bus parking lot and taken to the Dance Tent where students can then retrieve them for lunch.
There is a school bus parking lot for schools with buses. Regular vehicles will need to park in our regular parking areas.
