Where are we going today?

Historic Prophetstown is a fun living history site that includes a lot of hands on activities for kids and adults alike. Every day at around 3pm chores begin, people are welcome to help the staff feed the animals, hand milk the cows and collect eggs from the chicken coop. We also have walking trails throughout our tall grass prairie and a corn maze in the fall. The Native American Woodland Village is open for people to walk through; we do have an interpreter available during special events or scheduled programs. Guided tours are available when scheduled.

    Tampico (President Reagan's Birthplace) is a typical nice quiet little town. The location of his birth is now a local museum curated by local residents. Considering the small budget, they have collected a lot of interesting Reagan family documents and pictures. The home and downstairs (previous bank) have been restored nicely. Even though President Reagan only lived there 3 years, the town is very proud of his legacy. If you are a Reagan fan, it is worth the trip to see.
