The Frontier Players Association is a living history group dedicated to presenting Ohio history in a fun and exciting format. The annual drama "Frontier Spirit 1799" emphasizes the historic figures and significant events that led to the settlement of Ohio, Fairfield County, and the town of New Lancaster.

History of Frontier Spirit 1799
The Frontier Players Association traces its beginnings back to 1979 when founder Mark Howes, Preserve Manager with the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, presented a different program at one of his State Nature Preserves.

That first year presented 5 historic figures to 63 visitors on a single November Saturday. Now, this living history event includes well over 150 players for a crowd of 200 to 3000 during the last full weekend of September.Frontier Spirit living history presentation Alley Park, Lancaster, Ohio<

After 3 decades there is a walking trail featuring 5 or 6 scenes and a large pioneer village depicting the life of the early settlers.

Sunday begins at 9:00AM with a church service by a circuit rider preacher, attended by the families of the village dressed in period clothing. The public is invited and encouraged to join us in this non-denominational Christian service.
