Description

Online registration is not available. Please call the Prairieview Education Center at 815-479-5779 for additional information.

Step back in time to the 1850's at harvest time. Try your hand at corn shelling, grinding corn into flour, or making a corn husk or yarn doll. Witness harvest activities like the baking of bread in the wood-burning cookstove and grinding herbs for winter use. Tour the historic farmhouse to learn more about its restoration, or visit with a Cavalry sergeant and his horse as they demonstrate the weapons of the era used to protect these frontier lands.


This is a free special event and registration is not required. All ages are welcome. Children ages 13 and under must be accompanied by an adult family member.
