Fourth Grade Field Trip: As part of their study of the Midwest region of the United States, each fourth grade class will visit historic Wagner Farm over the next few weeks. “Wagner Farm stands as one of the few remaining farms in north suburban Cook County, Illinois. It sits on 18.6 acres of land, surrounded by suburban homes and major roadways. Though engulfed by a 21st century landscape, the site holds a history of Glenview that not many other museums can attest to. The Wagner family owned and lived on the property until the death of Rose Wagner in 1997. In addition to the cows in the pasture, Wagner Farm has chickens, draft horses, and pigs as well as a restored farmhouse and barn and the award-winning Wagner Farm Heritage Center. Wagner Farm webpage While visiting the farm, the fourth graders will be instructed on how to milk a cow, shuck corn, feed the livestock, wash garments using a scrub board and a manual wringer, and they will cook on a wood burning stove.
