Where are we going today?

History CAN be fun with the 19th Century Willowbrook Village, where kids and families can experience life the way it used to be! 

19th Century Willowbrook Village has over 10,000 amazing artifacts that cover crafts and trades from over 100 years ago. With two historic houses, as well as their barns, and even a reproduction of a schoolhouse and a bandstand, it really will feel like you are living in the 1800s!

Did we mention there is even an incredible steam engine powered horse carousel dating back to 1894? With 24 beautiful horses and 4 charlots, it's a great look back at how families used to entertain themselves.

Ever seen an 1849 Concord Stagecoach? Better get to the village quick then so you can! This restored country village also is filled with millponds and waterfalls - just to name a few of the very cool things they have there.

Did you know that 19th century doctors used to tend to their patients at home? Well, they needed to get there somehow, so you can check out the carriage they used to use to provide year round care! You've heard about cider, but how is it made? The Cider Mill and apple press is a very interesting way to see how it was made back in the day - maybe it's the same as it is now - you'll have to see!

From the Blacksmith House, the Carriage Shop, and the Carpenters Shop are other 19th century workshops that the kids will love seeing, where they can learn not only what they did in each trade but how they did it, and even a schoolhouse where kids can see how school life has changed since the 1830s.

We bet it's changed quite a lot!

A fascinatingly historic and educational family day out for the family and kids at 19th Century Willowbrook Village!

    Had an awesome day! Horse drawn carriage ride, rode the 1894 carousel, they even had a live pianist accompanying silent movies at the ice cream parlor. Recommend visiting the side near the Trafton house first so you get a chance to see the live events before 3 (they were finishing up around 3:30). Something for everyone, we arrived at 12:30 and had to hurry to catch everything by 5! Only improvement would be more clearly labeling how all the equipment worked, some items looked very interesting, but if you didn't know what you were looking at you...Read More

Highly recommend.
