Ever wonder what it must have been like to live in the mid-18th century?
No iPhones. No texts. No worries?
Well, here is your chance to gain a bit of insight into what that kind of life was like: The Isle a la Cache Brigade will bring the Illinois Territory to life during the mid-18th century in a "Living History Demonstration," according to a news release issued by Forest Preserve District of Will County public information officer Bruce Hodgdon.
The demonstration will run from noon to 3 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 8, at Isle a la Cache Museum in Romeoville. Admission is free. And the program is open to all ages.
Hodgdon said the Isle a la Cache Brigade is a volunteer group that shares skills used in the 18th century fur trade. He said the brigade consists of re-enactors who represent voyageurs, courier du bois, French women, Metis and Native Americans.
And, he said, on any given Sunday, you may find potters, musket shooters, cooks, seamstresses or crafsmen sharing their talents.
Isle a la Cache Museum is located at 501 E. 135th St. in Romeoville. For more information, call the museum (815) 886-1467. Or visit ReconnectWithNature.org.
