Programs at Kline Creek Farm teach history with a side of elbow grease
WEST CHICAGO – In the 1890s, people were not lounging around watching TV or loading up the washing machine on laundry day.
At Kline Creek Farm, visitors step into the late 19th century and are encouraged to participate in tasks that a normal person from the era would carry out, such as cleaning laundry and stacking hay.
Kline Creek programs, including Children’s Farm Chores and Children’s Story Hour, offer today’s kids a chance to experience the past. Children’s Farm Chores is a program where children take on the chores of a child in 1890. Mondays are dedicated to helping Mom, while Thursdays are all about helping Dad. Volunteers at Kline Creek give children a description of each chore and why it is important, then the kids can jump into the action.
