History comes alive at the 25th Annual Heritage Festival at McConnells Mill State Park. The Festival, sponsored by the Portersville-Prospect Rotary, celebrates the operational time period of the historical gristmill—from 1852 to 1928. Artists and craftspeople from the local area demonstrate their skills and provide regional art for sale. Bluegrass and Celtic music and free tours of the mill will be offered. The historic gristmill houses the fascinating machinery that ground the grain for the community surrounding Slippery Rock Gorge. A civil war encampment with live cannon fire at 11:00, 12:30, 2:00 and 4:00 and family activities both days bring history to life. A Sunday morning “Old Time” church service is scheduled for 10:30 a.m.  Located in Kildoo picnic area, and the gristmill.  Free admission and free parking!
