We would like to invite everyone back for our 6th 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.
If you do a specialty impression, or period craft please contact us about setting up at our event. If you are a preacher and would like to minister to our reenactors in a lovely 1860's era church, please contact us.
A warm thanks goes out to Photographer Holly Grass, who has provided all of the lovely images you see on our website.

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, the historic Fishtrap church and blacksmiths shop. The farm is fully fenced in to ensure the modern world doesn't encroach. A weekend at the farm is truly like stepping back in time.
