Visit an era of pioneers and settlers as McHenry County changes from a rugged frontier into a rapidly growing cluster of farms and villages.  Experience life on the trail inside a covered wagon and see what the first settlers found in this new land.  Who were the early settlers?  Where did they come from?  What legacy did they leave?
