The word heritage means “traditions”. Each year we celebrate with events for the entire family, parades, antique tractors and lots of entertainment.
One weekend each year we come together as a community to work, play, share, serve and even show off a little. We celebrate our little community in a very big way! Everyone is invited to join us!

Visit "Rendezvous", a pre 1840 encampment. Here you can travel back in time when Indiana was first being settled and the great west was being explored by fur trappers and traders. These re-enactors demonstrate life on the early frontier, a LIVING example of the fur trade era. Rendezvous is dedicated to preserving the traditions and ways of our nation's greatest, most daring explorers and pioneers.
