What is there to do?

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.
