Independence Pioneer Village
Had a weekend getaway with my love and kind of stumbled across your village. It was such a fantastic private tour with Mr. Lee. Had an amazing time listening to the History of each cabin. May God Bless your great efforts to preserve such precious times!
Wow! What a busy fall in the village. Thanks to all the volunteers who helped us celebrate these events. We look forward to working with you again next season!
Glad the village is open again. See you on the 17th!
by the way, would you be able to email me the plot of land location where the cabin was removed from? I understand what's written on your website about it, it'd would just be cool to go to it's location in Tennessee. I'll have to stop by your place next time I'm in Illinois.
John Bartholomew from North Carolina, the Revolutionary War Private, was my 5th Great Grandpa. I found that you have the Bartholomew Homestead cabin. Sad it's still not in its original spot but glad you were able to preserve the actual building. i even went to UofI from 96-2000, wish I'd known you were where you are. Thank you for preserving a piece of my unbeknownst until now family history. I am forever grateful.
That would be Bob lee the owner.
Hi, I was wondering who I would have to get in contact with about potentially joining up with the Pioneer Village on a project I am currently working on.
Hello everyone! please join us for a virtual tour on Saturday June, 9th. call (217) 346-2016 for Reservation's. thank you!
Yes I agree it was very fun!
My 3 kids and I had the pleasure of attending the Presidents' Day activities at the Village. We had fun listening to "Abraham Lincoln" ( who we learned does not have a middle name!), having a lesson in the school house using slate boards, singing a few patriotic songs, a neat craft with an American flag made out of wood, and topped it off with festive cookies! We had a very nice, family time out there! Thanks!!
April just told me about this the other day. Love the pics...can't wait to come out and see in person.
Traci, The website is Great! Love the pics. Looking forward to coming back sometime in the future. Thanks for sending me the link. History is so often forgotten these days, Thanks for keeping it going!!!
Thanks for sending me the website address, Traci. It looks great and your photos are excellent. I had no idea the Pioneer Village had developed into such a beautiful place. The next time we get to Oakland, Allan and I will drive out to see it.
This is awesome. Hopefully someday I will be able to come your way and share this experience.
Love the site! The banner photo is stunning! Congrats. I'll be updating the Trial & Trib site this week, I'll put a link on it to this site.
