Great way to learn some history! 4/1/2006

This is a great way to spend the day, whether by yourself, with your spouse or your entire family, or friends. When you arrive you hop on a tractor that takes you out to the 1700 Ioway village to learn about the Ioway Indians during the 18th century. Complete with crafts, farming and housing. A short walk later and you arrive at the 1850 Pioneer farm. Check out the animals, the log cabin, or the barn. See staff milk cows, drive oxen, cook over an open fire, churn butter and much more. A short walk after that you're at the 1900 farmhouse. Where more activities are taking place. A stop at the corp center brings you up to date on farming through today. Then take the tractor back to the 1875 town where you can visit the local bank, schoolhouse, mansion, a middle class home, church, millenary, blacksmith and so much more. The staff and volunteers know their history and make it fun to enjoy. Don't forget to check out their special events throughout the year too, 4th of July, a Victorian funeral weekend, baseball classics, Christmas and Halloween! more
