Celebrate independence the old-fashioned way!

Celebrate a historic Independence Day in the town of Walnut Hill. 1876 marks the first centennial of the United States, and Living History Farms’ Independence Day activities truly show what this day meant to those in the 19th century—a day of family fun and games! Be sure to arrive early to tour our historic farms, then enjoy all the afternoon activities in the 1876 town of Walnut Hill.

Your ticket is for your arrival time. Once here, you may stay as long as you like. Last tractor cart to the farm sites leaves at 2:30 p.m.


The day will end with a Historic Baseball game played by 1876 rules.
