Historic Ward-Meade Park Living Museum History comes to life at Historic Ward-Meade Park as period dressed guides, including a "school marm," reenact prairie life circa 1900.

An 1870 Victorian Mansion is the focal point of the park, with other attractions including a log cabin, train depot, one-room schoolhouse, stone barn, gift shop, grocery store and a new turn-of-the-century drug store, complete with a working soda fountain.

Over 2 1/2 acres of botanical gardens add to the splendor of the area.
