Must see · Historic Site · Tourist Spot
Affiliated with the Smithsonian Institution, Conner Prairie offers the chance to immerse yourself in America's era of westward expansion and development. Visit the park, home to a house itself listed on the National Register of Historic Places, and delve deep into the 19th century, when this rural area began to grow as the nation's heartland. Wander the street of the town, recreated to resemble its appearance in 1836, and explore the array of replica businesses, sights, and reenactors dressed in period clothing. Afterward, make your way to the Civil War experience, which documents the defense of the area from a daring Confederate raid in 1863. You can also wander the park's network of nature trails to enjoy the nearby forest and even see some local animal residents.
