When the State of Illinois was established 200 years ago, what is now McHenry County was unchartered and was inhabited primarily by Native Americans, trappers and traders.  Join us as we experience the daily life of these early explorers and adventurers.  Match wits with the early merchants in our trading post and travel through 200 years of Illinois history on our Bicentennial Train.  Presented in cooperation with the Crystal Lake Public Library.
