Pauline Weaver Rendezvous
Friday, October 3, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Copper Ranch, Take Wagoner Road, off Rt. 89 south of Wilholt. There will be signs to lead the way. It is 17.5 miles to Cooper Ranch. Part of the road is dirt, but can be traveled by any vehicle.
This is both a educational and fun event for people of all ages. Families are encouraged to attend. It is called a "Rendezvous", the historic name for a gathering and celebration held by mountain men during the early 1800's. Often times local Indian tribes joined in the trading and competitive events were held. "Pauline Weaver was a mountain man who roamed our local Prescott area. During the ten days there will be demonstrations of blacksmithing, candle and soap making, weaving, spinning, Dutch oven and open pit cooking. Many will include hands-on participation. There will be plant walks to learn about our local foliage, hawk and knife throwing, and black powder shooting for all levels of experience. There will be both primitive camping for those folks who have the accoutrements of the time period for setting up a historic camp, and a "Tin Teepee" camp area for those with modern camp gear. Fees for an individual camp for the entire event is $40, family $60, or a weekend individual camp $25, and family $40.
Please visit us on for a day as well and join in the fun of reliving history. Walk in the steps of Pauline Weaver and Joe Walker.
