Rate This Event

 

Join us for the annual Lewis and Clark Living History at Knappton Cove Heritage Center on July 13-14, 2019 in Naselle, Washington. Knappton Cove Heritage Center and the Pacific Northwest Living Historians (PNLH) will present a living history program featuring costumed members of the PNLH who will demonstrate the tools and skills employed by the explorers of the epic Lewis and Clark expedition. The program is FREE, although donations to the Knappton Cove Heritage Center are welcomed.

Dressed in clothing of the style and materials worn by the voyagers of the Corps in 1805, Pacific Northwest Living Historians (PNLH) interpreters will demonstrate and discuss many of those tools and skills, including:

o Handling flintlock firearms
o Fire starting with flint and steel
o Camp cooking
o Making clothing from leather
o Making canoe paddles

Visitors will also learn the history and stories of the Lewis and Clark expedition: the native people who they met, the unfamiliar territory they traveled and mapped, and the strange new animals and plants they discovered.

Admission
FREE – Donations to the Knappton Cove Heritage Center are welcome!

Hours
Saturday 10:00 A.M. – 4:00 P.M.

About the Knappton Cove Heritage Center
The mission of the Knappton Cove Heritage Center is to preserve, interpret and promote the history of the US Columbia River Quarantine Station – listed on the Register of National Historic Places.

About the Lewis & Clark Expedition
Captain Meriwether Lewis and Captain William Clark were sent by President Thomas Jefferson to explore the newly acquired Louisiana Territory, and to seek the best route to the Pacific Ocean through what we now call the Pacific Northwest. During their voyage of 1804 – 1806, they led the “Corps of Northwestern Discovery” overland from St. Louis to the mouth of the Columbia River, and back again. With no means for resupply, the Corps – a U.S. Army unit of 31 men, accompanied by Sacagawea and her infant child, Jean Baptiste – needed to use a diverse combination of skills, along with the right tools, in order to survive.
