You can read about history in books, but then you can actually EXPERIENCE in person when you visit attractions such as Conner Prairie Interactive History Park!
This incredible historic experience in Indiana is over 1400 acres of historic fun. In fact, there are five historic areas, as well as a modern museum
The themed areas that you can enjoy are Lenape Camp, Conner Homestead, 1836 Prairietown, 1859 Balloon Voyage and 1863 Civil War Journey: Raid on Indiana. In each area “look, don’t touch” becomes “look, touch, smell, taste and hear” as you live history first-hand!
Within these areas, you can have incredible experiences. You can immerse yourself in a 19th century village, and learn the routines of life back in 1836. Kids can even interact with animals, and study in a one-room schoolhouse! We imagine the school is much different from the ones you are used to today!
Kids can learn about the 1863 Civil War Journey, where you will cross a covered bridge, and step into Dupont shortly after the raid of 1863. You can just imagine what it would have felt like to actually be there in person.
