We would like to invite everyone back for our 4th annual Battle of Hager's Farm! Through the years the Hager's Farm planning committee has worked hard to bring the public an exciting reenactment that showcases the many clashes between union and confederate forces in Johnson County during the Civil War. We strive to provide reenactors with an exciting event. You will be well taken care of at the farm. Cafe on Main caters our event providing reenactors with 3 delicious and generously portioned meal. We offer generous bounties, including a pound of powder for the first 100 soldiers to register.
A warm thanks goes out to Photographer Holly Grass, who has provided all of the lovely images you see on our website.

We our very honored to announce that this years church services will be conducted by Re-enactor's Missions for Jesus Christ (RMJC). RMJC has faithfully ministering to the reenacting community since 1984.
(Sadly this will not be the case, Mr. Farley and the RMJC has decided to not honor their obligation to Hager's Farm and instead will be going to another event. While this is sad we assure you we will have a wonderful Chaplin and church service in our 1860's era church)
What makes this event special?
When we began planning this reenactment we did not have to look very hard for the perfect venue. nestled beside beautiful Paintsville Lake is the Mountain Homeplace a working 1850-1860's era living history farm. Each of the buildings that make up the farm were saved from destruction and decay from the surrounding area in Johnson County. The farm is home to a double pen cabin that once belonged to the McKenzie family, a double crib barn, one room school house, church and blacksmiths shop. A weekend at the farm is truly like stepping back in time.
