Distaff Days

A Woman's Frontier Skills Weekend  August 6-7

One of the things that we will be demonstrating this year at Distaff Days in August is cooking. One of the best things about volunteering at Fort Roberdeau is the moment that you know that you just brought history to life for someone. In the Log House we have many activities that we do during school tours and for special events. During the cooking demonstration participants get a hands on experience combining ingredients, grinding spices, making biscuits and churning butter among other things. We often bake a cake in the coals That is then served to the volunteers during lunch as a dessert.

Thank you Stephen Port for sharing this video with us. It is wonderful to be able to share the gasps of the children as the cake comes out of the pan with everyone. It is this moment which makes every moment of hard work out at the fort worth it.

 

Fort Roberdeau is a county park located in Blair County, Pennsylvania. We offer a variety of activities and services to the community. We have picnic tables, pathways and several hundred acres of public land. We are best known for the Fort located here. We offer tours of the fort, and special activities for organizations.
