Step back in time more than 100 years and watch history come to life at Spring Valley’s largest and most popular event held at both Heritage Farm and Merkle Cabin! The event features hands-on demonstrations of frontier-era and 1880s farm life including cider pressing, blacksmithing and fall planting. Other activities include children’s crafts, 19th century games and live music on two stages. Grilled food, taffy apples, cold beverages and other tasty fall treats will be available for purchase. Parking is available off Plum Grove Road across from Heritage Farm and the Nature Center on Schaumburg Road.
