Living History Farms
11121 Hickman Rd
Urbandale, IA 50322 United States

Sit on an 1875 jury during Living History Farms’ Circuit Court Day. Lawyers, witnesses, judge, and court clerks, re-created by costumed interpreters, will present real court cases from 1870s Iowa courts. Museum guests will sit on the jury and find out if their verdicts match those of their 19th century predecessors. Cases begin at 11am, 11:30am, noon, 1pm, 1:30pm, and 2pm in the Schoolhouse. Each will last approximately 25 minutes.

Thank you to our guest judge, former Iowa Supreme Court Justice, Michael Streit.
