Living History Farms will open for the general visiting season on Monday, May 1. History comes to life as you set out on a self-guided visit. Our friendly, informative staff provide a unique learning environment of seasonal activities and demonstrations. They’ll show you how Native Americans grew crops in the 1700s, how farmers used oxen to open the prairies in the 1850s, and how horses were used to revolutionize agriculture in the 1900s.
Touch, play and engage at each of our three working farm sites and in our 1875 Town of Walnut Hill, complete with a Blacksmith, General Store, Print Shop and Flynn Mansion and Barn, which are both on the National Register of Historic Places.
General admission tickets may be purchased in advance online or at the door. www.LHF.org
