9 a.m.-5 p.m.

In a 1920s and 1930s setting of flappers and flivvers, come mingle on Main Street with the likes of Civil War bushwhackers and jayhawkers; 1930s outlaws and gangsters; horse thieves in a shoot-out; bank robbers; and a few good men – U.S. presidents and others.

Chow-down on biscuits with gravy, and other old-time foods; watch artisans and craftsmen; ride the horse-pulled wagon for a tour of the Victorian homes. View the beautiful houses, the hitching posts and buggy steps as your tour guide tells the stories of the houses and their people.

At 9 a.m., 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m., catch the free shuttle for the Backroads tour of Boone Township and beyond. Hear about, see and experience Phenix Marble Quarry (open to the public on this day only); the interesting mid 1830s living history, at Nathan Boone State Historic Site; see the Leaky Roof Rail Line and the Holy Resurrection Cemetery built for slaves, paupers and Indians. The shuttle passes the birthplace of infamous Ma Barker – FBI’s public enemy #1 during the early 1930s.
