“filled with artifacts of the 19th century”
The museum campus consists of a Victorian village with 26 historical buildings filled with artifacts of the era as well as several beautiful 19th century gardens that depict life in northern Illinois from 1890 to 1910. Interpreters in authentic period dress are available seasonally for guided tours. The main museum building holds large group meeting rooms and exhibit space with a number of permanent exhibits reflecting Rockford's history and culture. Special events throughout the year include a World War II re-enatment, Sock Monkey and Scarecrow Harvest Festivals, and more. Free recreational path located on property.
Did you know that the sock monkey was invented in Rockford, Illinois? Or that the Rockford Peaches who inspired "A League of Their Own" once called the city home? Discover all of these things and more at the Midway Village Museum! I loved this unique opportunity to experience Rockford's history and learn more about this awesome community.
