Arrow Rock State Historic site will host a living-history encampment 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. Oct. 10 and Oct. 11 on the west lawn of the J. Huston Tavern.

The public is invited to the event, which will feature a wagon, a few period-style tents and trade goods of the type conveyed to Santa Fe from Arrow Rock and the Boone’s Lick Country in the 1830s, according to a news release.

Volunteers will demonstrate how to use the equipment and the conditions encountered on the Santa Fe Trail between Missouri and New Mexico.

Arrow Rock merchants will be open and several craftspeople will be demonstrating on the Main Street boardwalk.

The locations and size of the event will allow for social distancing and visitors are asked to wear face coverings when visiting the encampment and community businesses.

The Arrow Rock State Historic Site is located at 39521 Visitor Center Drive in Arrow Rock. For more information about the event, call 660-837-3330.
