Eighth Annual House Mountain Knap-In
Summer is rolling along and it's time to bust rock! Come join us the weekend of July 14, 15,16 and 17, 2016 for the eighth annual House Mountain Knap-In near Lexington, Va. Come to watch, swap tales and help us grow our ever-expanding flake pile.
The Knap-In will be held near the end of Bird Forest Road on the western slope of House Mountain in Rockbridge County, Va. Our property is a private 600 acre mountain land conservancy. Oak ridges surround our location and rise up to the twin crests of House Mountain. Not too long ago this area was home to the ancient peoples of the Collier's Creek valley. Now we knap along their paths.
Come to break some rock, shoot your bow, to learn, explore and have fun. Over the years this event has grown and always draws an interesting crowd.
Our main knapping area is a large log barn, out of the sun and rain. Outside we'll be shooting archery and atlatl intermittently during the days. Hear the whiz of the dart that fed your ancestors and brought home the robes.
The Knap-In doubles as an informal Indian artifact show. Bring artifact finds for ID. Some of our knappers are expert in the field of point typology and specialize in regional styles and methods of manufacture. As always looks for interesting displays. Knappers are free to vend their wares of raw stone, rough forms and finished art.
The location for the Knap-In is easily accessed from Interstate 64 in Rockbridge County, Va., and from the town of Lexington. We have well water on site, multiple camping areas with water and plenty of space, porta-johns, and a few limited bedrooms. Bring the food you need. The knapping barn is huge so feel free to bring a small cot and stay there if you wish. We have generously been provided this location by the owner and simply ask that guests treat the property as their own.
There will be a full meal served on Saturday evening at 6 p.m. We'll put out plenty to eat, but feel welcome to bring a favorite dish or beverages. We'll have soft drinks and water on hand as well.
Standard advice to guests: no smoking or fires inside the barn area please, no illegal substances, no muscle dogs. We will ask this year only because we have to, please keep children under your control. This event features multiple sharp and dangerous objects, fragile things of value on display and weapons that are capable of great injury.
If you think you want to attend, please let us know so we can plan for the Saturday evening meal. Email or call at the cell number below. Town and stores are 25 minutes away in Lexington.
