WELCOME TO HISTORIC WAGNER FARM AND HERITAGE CENTER! Where history meets education. The Glenview Park District’s 18.6 acre Wagner Farm is one of the last working dairy farms in Cook County and is open to the public for recreation and learning. The farm provides a unique opportunity for families to learn about our farming heritage and experience first hand “the way things used to be.” In addition to the cows in the pasture, Wagner Farm has chick- ens, draft horses and pigs, as well as a restored farmhouse and barn. Visit the award-winning Wagner Farm Heritage Center. • Explore the world of agriculture and rural life and under- stand its direct relationship to our everyday lives (main hall). • Climb inside a two-story silo (main hall). • Travel back in time and “shop through history” (1930’s Grocery Store).
