Living History open house planned July 14

RINGWOOD – A Living History open house tour gives participants a chance to step back in time to the 1850s and World War II.

Attendees get to tour the restored Greek revival house and learn more about the Powers and Walker families that called the area home in the 1850s.

Volunteers will be there to answer questions, offer tours and demonstrate skills.

There also will be several presentations focusing on the history of the house.

The event will be from noon to 4 p.m. July 14 at Glacial Park’s Powers-Walker House, 6201 Harts Road, Ringwood.

At 2 p.m., there will be a remembrance of the Schaefer and Steinmetz families, who previously lived in the house.

The event is free.

Registration is not required.

For information, call Prairieview Education Center at 815-479-5779 or visit www.mccdistrict.org.
