In support of living history, la Compagnie des Beaux Eaux sponsored the March Tippecanoe County Historical Society’s French Colonial Living History Weekend Campout, which demonstrated how mid-18th-century French habitants would have lived on the banks of the Wabash River.
Held in the Ft. Ouiatenon block house, the event was challenged by a late spring snow. Reenactors dedicated to authentic French Colonial living history came together to exchange ideas and explore the possibilities for future events. David’s pottery was used in a setting similar to that which the early French traders and habitants would have encountered.
During the first weekend in June, they met again and shared their event with interested members of the public.
