A Day in the Country Farm, Barn & Ag Tour

June 29 @ 9:00 am - 4:00 pm

A Self-Guided Tour of Agricultural Sites in LaSalle County

Come see the behind-the-scenes workings of agricultural sites in the I&M Canal National Heritage Area while discovering the rich history of our region. Hop in the car for this self-guided driving tour that will enable you to explore our area’s barns, livestock, silos and curiosities in a unique, family-friendly event.

On this one-day tour of ag sites around LaSalle, Utica, Ottawa and Seneca, you’ll have rare, behind-the-scenes access to sites like an alpaca farm, a centennial barn, a working grain elevator, historical museums that tell the region’s stories and more. You’ll also have opportunities to view historical farm implements, see live demonstrations and browse ag-related products for sale. All along, you’ll discover the area’s agricultural history, architectural elements of the properties and what it means to be a farmer in the 21st century.

This is a self-guided, driving tour that includes nine locations. Check in with your ticket receipt at either the Seneca Historical Museum (the easternmost stop) or the I&M Canal Visitor Center in LaSalle (the westernmost stop). At these check-in stops, visitors will receive wristbands that will enable you to gain entry to the other sites. A map of the tour sites will also be provided.
