Independence Day & Historic Baseball

Saturday, July 4
9:00 am - 4:00 pm


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

Open 9am-4pm, with games beginning at 11am.

Enjoy an old-fashioned fourth with an iconic, historic Independence Day celebration in the 1876 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. Be sure to arrive early to tour our historic farms, enjoy the town activities, and still have time to catch the Walnut Hill Bluestockings baseball game at 2:30pm. This season we have removed the bleachers. Please bring a lawn chair or blanket to watch the game and spread out from other visitors.
