Experience local history up close and personal. On these Sundays, you may find cooks, seamstresses, voyageurs, soldiers or craftsmen sharing their talents.
The February focus is on the 18th-century trade goods brought from New France by the French voyageurs. Learn how animal furs were used as money by the Potawatomi to buy trade goods. Our 18th Century Trader’s Cabin will be open with a cozy fire inside to keep you warm.
