Our family visited your village for the Christmas tour on Saturday. Just want to let you know how much we all enjoyed the afternoon! It is hard to find an event that captures the attention of the whole family, but our three-generation group ( which included 4 boys ages 4 through 13!) found the experience quite pleasing. Thank you very much!

Wow! The village has seen a few changes this 2018 season. Much work has been done on site and you have a friendly staff on board. Your schedule appears to be filling up with events this fall with the Unplugged programs, Bluegrass music, Old Settlers Day, Primitive antiques show, an Independent Mud Run and even an Old Fashioned Christmas Tour this year. Congratulations IPV!

Had a weekend getaway with my love and kind of stumbled across your village. It was such a fantastic private tour with Mr. Lee. Had an amazing time listening to the History of each cabin. May God Bless your great efforts to preserve such precious times!

by the way, would you be able to email me the plot of land location where the cabin was removed from? I understand what's written on your website about it, it'd would just be cool to go to it's location in Tennessee. I'll have to stop by your place next time I'm in Illinois.

John Bartholomew from North Carolina, the Revolutionary War Private, was my 5th Great Grandpa. I found that you have the Bartholomew Homestead cabin. Sad it's still not in its original spot but glad you were able to preserve the actual building. i even went to UofI from 96-2000, wish I'd known you were where you are. Thank you for preserving a piece of my unbeknownst until now family history. I am forever grateful.

Hi, I was wondering who I would have to get in contact with about potentially joining up with the Pioneer Village on a project I am currently working on.
