Caesar's Creek Pioneer Village


Welcome to the Website for the Pioneer Village. Our website is still going through a few growing pains so it is possible you will find some sections a little short on information. Rest assured though we are working hard to get every section updated and get as much information as you could possibly want on the website. We are going to be putting a lot of information about the History of the Village and you will be able to see how we have grown over the years also. If you have comments, questions or kudos, feel free to drop us a line.

Upcoming Events:

Candlelight Walk

December 5th and December 12th

Time: 4 pm to 9 pm

Cost: $5 per person

Take a step back into time as the village spends the night being illuminated by candle light. 

We will take you back to a time when Christmas time was celebrated in the most basic of ways. All of our buildings will be open for the public to go through and once it gets dark the whole village will be lit up by candle light along our paths between the buildings and within the buildings themselves. 

Come out and celebrate Winter time with us at one of our few night time events and see how this time of year used to be celebrated before all of the hustle and bustle of the holidays. 


In regard to photography at the Pioneer Village. We know this time of year, many photographers like to get out and take pictures using the Fall colors. We do want to remind everyone that the Pioneer Village is not actually owned by the state and we are a private non-profit organization. If you are going to be taking photos at the Pioneer Village for professional use there are a few things to keep in mind:

a) All images of the Pioneer Village are the property of the Pioneer Village and monetary gain cannot be made off of images of our buildings.

b) We request if you are using the Village for photo shoots that you do donate to the Pioneer Village. We maintain the Village completely off of our events and money which is donated to us and the buildings you love to use as backgrounds and the grounds which you love to use cost a considerable amount of money to maintain each year.

c) If you are going to take pictures, please respect the grounds. Do not climb on or sit on any part of the buildings or anywhere that you should not sit. Do not move our benches or anything else. Everything is in its place for a reason. Please do not try to enter any of the buildings. The buildings are closed and locked for a reason.

* Metal Detecting at the Village *

As there have been an influx of inquiries about metal detecting at the village, we decided to post a message here about it. As the Pioneer Village is located on State land (we rent the land from the state), we abide by their rules which state that the only place any metal detecting can take place is on the sandy portion of the beach at the Public Beach Area. All other metal detecting is a prohibited activity.
