Follow the River Walk
September 17 @ 2:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The City of Hinton invites you to join us in our first-ever celebration of Mary Draper Ingles, and her journey to freedom along the New River! Walk along the same path that she trekked during the summer and fall of 1755, and participate in an educational discussion with national park rangers at Richmond Hamilton Farm to hear her story, and learn more about subsistence farming.
Free registration begins at 1:30pm at the Explore Summers County building. The 2-mile walk to the farm begins at 2:00pm, with light refreshments offered upon arrival. Then return back to town by 5:00pm, where attendees are invited to enjoy dinner on their own. Finish off the evening and join us for a free movie screening of “Follow the River” in Hinton City Park at 7:00pm!
