Living History Farms

Of all the places I haven't written about yet, it's maybe my favorite!  This summer I am interning in the marketing and communications department at Living History Farms in Urbandale, IA.  The farm is an outdoor, hands-on museum.  There are different farms you can visit,  interpreters are at each site to tell you the history of the farm site, how it was run by the people, etc.  You walk/hike along a path and you stop at three farm sites.  I'll show you a few pictures from each site in order.

1700 Ioway Farm:
1850's Farm:

1900 Farm:


Walking path that takes people from farm site to farm site:

The tractor then takes you from the farms sites:
To the 1875 Town of Walnut Hill:

Here is Dario and the kids at the old fashioned 4th of July event.  At the Flynn Mansion.

In the General Store

I highly encourage anyone who would like more information on Living History Farms to click here and plan a visit.  They are only open during the summer and a few times in the fall, spring and winter for special events, which are so much fun!
