A STEP BACK IN TIME
Step away from the hustle and bustle back to a time when toys, tools, clothing and furniture was hand-made. Food was grown in your garden or your livestock pen and generously shared. Work was hard and constant, but the quiet stretched for miles.
See every-day life in the mid-1800’s through a self-guided tour of 16 restored log homes and outbuildings filled on this rural 40-acre settlement. Authentic period furnishings and artifacts fill most buildings. Learn how different life was before and after the Civil War.
Bring a picnic, walk the trails and let the whole family unplug and enjoy learning about our history.
Make arrangements to have a delicious ‘Southern-Style’ lunch with co-workers, schedule a school or group tour, or enjoy a rustic wedding or special event.
Historic Collinsville is currently closed and will re-open in the Spring.
