Every September for the last seven years, The Montpelier Historical Society and Hartford City’s Bryon “Stonehunter” Maddox have given visitors a chance to see what it was like to be living in Blackford County in the days when the Myaamia were plentiful, and fur traders sold their wares and trapped in the region. The Rendezvous on the Reserve took place last weekend on the Godfroy Reserve near Montpelier.

“We hope to shed light on this part of our local history that many are unaware of today,” said Maddox. “I want to extend a special thank you to the Blackford County Community Foundation, they have been extremely generous helping us to put this on. We couldn’t have done this without their support,” he continued. “The ‘Rendezvous on the Reserve’ is unique because of the location,” he explains.
