Quincy residents took a step back in history Saturday into the 1800s.
The annual Frontier Settlement Day kicked off the weekend with several different areas for visitors to experience.
Over 300 visitors converged on to Quinsippi Island to participate in a morning walk for the Cabin Village.
Cabins at the location were open for tours as well as different activities for children, including candle dipping and soap and brick making.
Visitors also were treated with a visit from the soldiers and ladies of the war of 1812.
John Gebhardt, President of the Friends of Log Cabins, enjoyed the attendance at the event.
"The turnout was really good, it was a great day, the weather was nice, and we had at last count over 350 people show up, so it's been a real good outing, we've had a lot of kids out here, and they got to see what life was like in the 1800s" Gebhardt said.
Gebhardt says volunteers are always needed with Friends of the Log Cabins.
