Travel back in time to Collinsville. See the way people lived during this era. Experience life as it was on the farm, school, and church during the 1800's.

Visiting the log cabins is a great way to spend 2-3 hours and see life in a simpler, but more difficult era. Very interesting to roam about at one's leisure. Great places for picnics.
