Join the Hoffman Estates Historical Sites Commission as they conduct tours of the Sunderlage Farmhouse at their annual open house.   Cookies and refreshments will be served.

In addition, the Schaumburg Township Historical Society is sponsoring the Sharon Kimble Ice Cream Social.  Come see how ice cream was made before we had Baskin Robbins or Dairy Queen.    If you enjoy socializing, learning about history and eating ice cream then stop by.  This is free but, as always, a donation will be accepted for the ice cream or our Raise the Flag Fund.

Take this opportunity to view this historical farmhouse and its National Register smokehouse, talk to the Civil War reenactors,  check out the cute animals and eat some delicious ice cream!

When:  Sunday, July 23, 2017 from 12-4 p.m.
Where:  Sunderlage Farmhouse at 1775 Vista Lane, Hoffman Estates

    Just one small correction = there is no charge for this event. Come and enjoy tasting homemade ice cream, tour house and smokehouse and watch the children enjoy pony rides and a petting zoo. Historical Sites Commission will also offer cookies and refreshments. It is a nice way to spend a Sunday afternoon.

    Another correction = the time for this event i to 3 p.m., not 12 to 2 p.m.
