Every mid-September, upon Chestnut Ridge in the mall hamlet of Stahlstown, PA, a small festival take place to gather both townspeople and visitors together in celebration of the simple frontier life of early settlers in the late 18th Century. The festival in particular focuses on flax scutching, the process of using flax plants in the creation of clothing. It is the oldest festival of its kind in the United States, entering its 112th Year in 2019 (celebrated continuously except during WWII). One of the activities is a reenactment of a indian raid, several actually having occurred near Stahlstown at the height of the American Revolution.
