Living History Farms

Recently I had the pleasure of re-visiting a place I frequented as a child, Living History Farms in Urbandale, IA.

"Living History Farms is an interactive outdoor museum which educates, entertains and connects people of all ages to Midwestern rural life experiences."

When I was a kid, I attended the day camp at Living History Farms. It was great to go back and relive some of those memories as an adult. If you've never been, I would highly recommend a visit!

It's about a mile and half walking tour through a 1600's farm, 1700's farm, 1800's farm, 1900's farm and ending in a little town from the late 1800's.

Here are some photos that I took of the farms:
