Doddridge Community Park


For three days this spring the Doddridge Community Park will be transported back into the 1820 time period when there was a trading post at the Sulphur River Fork. This original trading post was established by the federal government as a means for the Indians to buy & sell their goods. For three days this spring professional reenactors from this time period along with several tribes of Indians will come and setup camp in the Doddridge Community Park. This area will be transformed into a completely different time period. There will be blacksmiths, flint knapping, making of arrowheads, archery & muzzleloader demonstrations and more. The ladies will be grinding corn, spinning cotton, giving quilting demonstrations and more. There will be a 40’ Keel boat on display from the Little Rock area. There will also be artifacts from the dig that Sau did several years ago. There will be food and drink vendors selling refreshments.

Friday April 6, 2018 the trading post will be open to local schools. We already have hundreds of children signed up to come through our trading post days.

Saturday & Sunday April 7th & 8th, 2018 the trading post will be open to the general public from 9:00am – 5:00pm. This is a free community event.
