About Historic Wagner Farm

Location:

1510 Wagner Rd., Glenview, IL 60025, US

Mission Statement

To promote an educational and memorable experience through programs and site visits that ignite the imagination, inspire our visitors, and preserve our local agricultural history.

Description

Historic Wagner Farm is one of the last working dairy farms in Cook County and is open to the public for recreation and learning. The farm provides a unique opportunity for families to learn about our farming heritage and experience first hand "the way things used to be."

In addition to the cows in the pasture, Wagner Farm has chickens, draft horses, and pigs as well as a restored farmhouse and barn and the award-winning Wagner Farm Heritage Center. The Heritage Center contains interactive exhibits where you can learn about farming from the early 20th century through the present, "shop through history" at our 1930s Grocery Store or purchase a souvenir of your visit from our Museum Store.

Historic Wagner Farm offers public visitation hours, educational programs for all ages, and special events throughout the year as well as seasonal sales of farm products.
