Boot Hill Museum

Erie

Erie is host to the oldest consecutively running Old Soldiers and Sailors Reunion in America. Held annually during the third week of July since 1873, the reunion features a “Free Bean Feed.” The beans are prepared using a historic recipe, simmering all day in cast-iron kettles over wood fires like soldiers used in the Civil War. The beans may be an old tradition, but guest country and western musicians from Nashville add a touch of modern spice to the Friday night celebration.
