Early Arkansaw Reenactors Association 2nd Annual Scott Settlement Rendezvous

Friday and Saturday, April 27th and 28th

10 AM to 5PM

Scott Settlement is located in Scott, Arkansas, just east of North Little Rock, AR, 10 miles east of I-440 on HWY 165, at the junction of Alexander and Walkers Corner RD. Across the street from the Scott Charter School and down the road from the Post Office.

The time period is 1804 -1840 as people from all Nations were moving into and through what is now Arkansas. As seen in the photo, people lived in conventional tents and some in lean-to shelters until they could build permanent homes. Join us in celebration of these times at Scott Settlement. There will be a presentation on the Trail of Tears in Arkansas. In addition to settlement tours, the blacksmith shop will be open, and demonstrations of firearms, cooking, trapping, and everyday living. Plans are for a skillet and tomahawk throwing contest, rope pull, cooking contest, horse races (sort of), black powder muzzleloader trap shoot.

For the public: Free Parking! Food and drinks on-site. Toilets on-site. Admission is $3.

For Living History folks: No admission charge.  Firewood, water, and toilets provided. Potluck Saturday night, main dish provided.
