2020 Seasonal Tours & Special Happenings

We have re-envisioned events to seasonal tours for the fall of 2020 to ensure our offerings are safe. Many factors effect our ability to ensure our schedule offerings run – safety, volunteer availability, and cost. Our traditional beloved large event style will return when we are able to do so safely.

For now, we are pleased to share some tentative plans – in hopes that we can all be at the Village in a way that will ensure everyone stays safe but gets to enjoy all of the history and fun the Village has to offer this fall. 

Please note that our plans may need to change, but we will endeavor to share updates as soon as we are aware of them through our website and social media channels.

Harvest Time in the Village

Drive-Thru Tours
Sunday, October 4 ~ 10 am to 4 pm
Tickets must be purchased in advance online.

Time travel in your own vehicle, and truly go back in time to the Autumn of years gone by. This drive through tour of the Village is a peek into snapshots of pioneer life at harvest time, when preparations for the long winter ahead were in full swing. The tour will be approximately 30-45 minutes.

There is an optional audio portion of this tour, for those wishing to use their device to play through YouTube. The Village has public WiFi which can be accessed on the day of the event. Those wishing to experience the tour visually only, are also welcome to do so.

This is a completely hands-off experience, and vignettes are meant for viewing only.

Discover the origins and traditions of Halloween in this historical tour exploring the stories behind our modern-day Halloween beliefs and practices. Some of them are not what you think!
