Spring Mill’s Pioneer Village comes to life during Candlelight Tour

TERRE HAUTE — The Pioneer Village at Spring Mill State Park will come to life with historical re-enactors, crafts, demonstrations and musical entertainment during the 46th annual Candlelight Tour on Saturday. The tour is from 4 to 9 p.m. and is sponsored by service sorority Kappa Kappa Kappa’s Gamma Epsilon Chapter of Mitchell.

Dressed in traditional pioneer clothes, Tri Kappa members and their families and Spring Mill employees will re-create life in the mid-1800s in the houses and buildings of the restored Pioneer Village.

Visitors should bring a flashlight. Tri Kappa members will sell concession and food items in the Carriage House.

The event is free, although the standard park admission fee of $5 per in-state vehicle and $7 per out-of-state vehicle applies. Buses will shuttle visitors from the campground and inn parking lots to the village.

Tri Kappa is a statewide sorority that supports many community and state charitable, educational, and cultural projects. The Mitchell chapter has sponsored the Spring Mill Candlelight Tour since 1967. It has become a popular kick-off event for the weeklong Persimmon Festival in Mitchell.

Spring Mill State Park is at 3333 Indiana 60 East, Mitchell.
