The 19th annual Walk Back In Time will be taking place in Mexico, Missouri in September.
During the event, visitors can walk from camp to camp to experience life during the civil war, wild west, and World War II.
People can also talk with 1770’s colonists, native Americans, and Lewis and Clark- all in the same day.
Participants are encamped Friday night through Sunday September 22nd through September 24th and live as they would have in each era.
In addition to the western cowboy town of South Fork, WBIT 2023 will highlight the Old West, with a stagecoach, chuck wagons, civil war ambulance, General Grant, and more!
They will welcome “Stage Coach Journey” with Rick and Bev Hamby and crew. This original stagecoach was built in the 1880s in Concord, New Hampshire and then sent to the rugged west to carry passengers and mail on its circuit. Rick and Bev, with the crew, will entertain guests with tales of this historic coach and what its life was really like.
Lt. Governor Mike Kehoe will bring some of his historic buggies, as well as share stories of Missouri History.
The Missouri Humanities Council (MHC) has awarded a grant of $ 9960.00 to the Audrain County Historical Society in support of the project, “ Walk Back In Time 2023.” The MHC is the only state-wide agency in Missouri devoted exclusively to humanities education for citizens of all ages.
