Tours, demonstrations, exhibitions, food and entertainment are just part of the fun. Stroll through a restored tall-grass prairie, listen to an authentic civil war era band, take in a program about the underground railroad or the Donner Party. Old Settler Day is always the most popular Iles House Foundation event of the year.
The Strawbridge-Shepherd farmstead is located on Shepherd Road just south of the UIS campus. Ample free parking is available.
