CHRISTMAS IN THE SPRING VALLEY

The Volkening Heritage Farm & Merkle Cabin will help you experience the holiday season as it was in 1880s Schaumburg.  Elaborate Victorian decorations and traditional German foods filled the home with light and warmth, but farm work continued at its own pace.

See how German-American farm families in 19th century Schaumburg celebrated Christmas with traditional foods, simple homemade gifts and a continuation of their daily farm chores. Meet a traditional St. Nicholas and enjoy a cup of soup by the fireplace at the log cabin. The day will include refreshments, holiday treats, cookie decorating for the kids and craft activities.

Admission is $3/person or $12/family; free for children 3 and under.

Join the farm as they celebrate the holiday season on Saturday and Sunday, December 3 & 4 from 12 to 4 p.m.
