Kline Creek Farm Country Fair takes visitors back in time
Visitors to Kline Creek Farm on Sunday were able to experience a bit of DuPage County's agricultural past during the annual Country Fair.
There were midway games, entertainment, horse-drawn wagon rides and other activities during the final day of the two-day event at the living-history museum in West Chicago, which depicts local farm life in the 1890s.
The year's fair featured 1890s technology, including demonstrations of a mechanical cream separator, checkrow planting wire and a dog-powered mill.
In addition to a magician and storyteller, performers played popular 1890s music. The Museum of Wonder and Awe included items collected from the six corners of the globe.
Some of the fairgoers tested their skills and competed for prizes in the games tent. Others had souvenir portraits taken in period attire.
