Current River Heritage Days is off and running in Downtown Doniphan. The Pioneer Heritage Homestead was the hub of early activity with visiting school groups taking in live demonstrations of pioneer skills such as soap making, butter churning, cutting cross ties, blacksmithing, sawmilling, and ax throwing as well as living histories from the U.S. Civil War and World War I. Guest speaker was Henry Schoolcraft (portrayed by Dr. Rick Mansfield), an early explorer of the Missouri and Arkansas Ozarks region. Heritage Days continues throughout Friday and all day Saturday with a full lineup of events in Downtown Doniphan.
