Old Prairie Town at Ward-Meade Historic Site
Step back in time to the 1800s with a visit to Old Prairie Town/Ward-Meade Historic Site. The 1800s village features a replica of the 1854 Log Cabin in which pioneer and wheelwright Anthony Ward raised his family while constructing the Ward-Meade mansion which is now on the National Register of Historic Places. No visit to Old Prairie Town is complete without a pleasant stroll through the 2 1/2-acre Ward-Meade Botanical Garden.
