Thanksgiving on the Ohio Frontier

European settlers sat down with Native Americans in November of 1788 to celebrate the first Thanksgiving in Ohio. More than two centuries later, Shawnee Lookout gives guests a chance to relive the historic event with live retellings by Society of Northwest Longhunters reenactors at the Lookout’s log cabin and Springhouse lawn. After re-experiencing this incredible “union through gratitude,” which will be performed each half hour, guests can also get a taste of authentic fare from times long past. 


2-5 p.m. Saturday. Free with Hamilton County Parks Pass. Shawnee Lookout, 2808 Lawrenceburg Road, North Bend, greatparks.org.
