Help us find a great title for this new exhibit! More info>
This village features eight buildings in miniature scale that emulate structures that would have been typical in prairie settlements in the late 1800s. Kids will love going back in time and have fun playing in and exploring these buildings including a miniature school house, general store and settler’s cabins! Through this exhibit, the Heard will continue to connect visitors to the history of North American prairie and also their ecological significance. Less than 1% of the Blackland Prairie remains, making the tallgrass prairie the most-endangered large ecosystem in North America.
