Step back in time to the 1800s with a visit to Old Prairie Town/Ward-Meade Historic Site. The 1800s village features a replica of the 1854 Log Cabin in which pioneer and wheelwright Anthony Ward raised his family while constructing the Ward-Meade mansion which is now on the National Register of Historic Places. No visit to Old Prairie Town is complete without a pleasant stroll through the 2.5-acre Ward-Meade Botanical Garden.
Guided tours of Old Prairie Town's buildings are available at 10 am, Noon and 2 pm. Tues-Fri, Noon and 2 pm Sat. $5 for adults, $4 for seniors and $3 for children age 6-12. Children 5 and under are free. For a narrated virtual tour, download the Otocast app to your mobile device and search for Old Prairie Town.
