Hopkins County Historical Society invites the community to take a step back in time Saturday, Oct. 5, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m., during the annual Indian Summer Days event inside Heritage Park, located at 416 North Jackson St.
The Park will be open for exhibits and demonstrations of Caddo Indian artifacts, pottery making, hide tanning, and soap-making and candle-making. Spinning, weaving and quilting, butter churning, corn grinding and blacksmithing will also be demonstrated.
The park features the first log school built in Hopkins County and the first brick home built in Sulphur Springs plus many other interesting buildings and exhibits.
Art and craft vendor sites are available. Numerous food concessions will be available on the grounds, including samples from the John Chester Dutch Oven Cookoff, a special feature of the noon hour. All types of dishes from breads, meats and desserts prepared in Dutch ovens will be served by cooks in adult and youth categories at $5 per plate.
