Shadows of the Old West is a group of individuals engaged in the
portrayal of the period of Westward movement during the mid to late
1800's. Our group seeks to provide a glimpse into the past
through presentation and portrayals of the appearance, demeanor, and
activities of the men and women of that time.
A stroll through our camp provides visitors with a first-hand look at
the evolution from the early tent towns to the first Western
settlements. Visit with our living historians and view campfire
cooking, firearms demonstrations, and the Cowboy way of life.
Prepare to be educated and entertained by various presentations that
sometimes combine history and humor to provide an insight into the time
Our venues include encampments, living history events, Pow-Wows, fairs,
festivals, parades, talks and demonstrations at schools and private
events in New York and Pennsylvania.
