Schaumburg Autumn Harvest Festival takes visitors back in time
Visitors to Schaumburg's Spring Valley Nature Center took a trip back in time Sunday as the annual Autumn Harvest Festival gave them a view of life on a farm more than a century ago.
Held at Spring Valley's Merkle Cabin and Heritage Farm, the two-day fest featured live music and hands-on demonstrations of cider pressing, blacksmithing and fall planting.
For young visitors, there were activities including crafts and a chance to try 19th century games.
And when activities brought hunger, kids and adults alike could nosh on grilled food, taffy apples and other fall treats.
