A Day on the Prairie 2017:
The Great Sunbury Heist

Join us on Saturday September 16th for our annual Day on the Prairie

This year we will be bringing you a good old fashioned bank heist and trial in addition to your favorite village buildings.  

Also Kemmann's Implement and the Sunbury Bank will be making their Prairie Village Debut with an original 1905 Orient Buckboard and the original Sunbury Bank teller and sign.  

Of course we will entertain you with traditional music, games, activities and demonstrations.  Just a note though our threshing demonstration will not be held this year as our oat crop was not successful - but it will be back next year.

There will be food and shuttle rides to the events in town as well.

We look forward to seeing you on the 16th at the Historical Society Museum and Prairie Village at 1094 Highway 38 (just north of Tipton).

We are now connected to Amazon Smile! - Click on the button in the left column to access Amazon and start shopping.  Amazon will donate a percentage of your purchase to CCHS
