Fort Boonesborough State Park is planning a special weekend in June dedicated to descendants of the settlers who lived at the fort in the late 1700s.
“A Gathering of Descendants” will be June 13-14 and is open to the public. The park plans to have historical organizations on hand to help guests with genealogical research to see if they had family members at the fort.
