Historic Blackberry Farm celebrates the pioneer days of the 1800s, bringing yesteryear to life amid a beautiful setting of modern amenities and attractions. The living history museum on Aurora's southwest side recently underwent a modern makeover. The multi-level adventure playground will delight the kids with its network of climbing decks, slides, ropes and catwalk-style bridges connecting an array of playhouses - and a zip line. Admission also includes unlimited rides on the steam-engine replica train, hay wagon, carousel, ponies and pedal tractor course. Visit the farm animals and learn about pioneer life from the costumed historical interpreters posing as rug-weavers, silversmiths, quilters, blacksmiths, soap-makers and cooks. New improvements include a large performance shelter for live entertainment, modernized restrooms and concessions, expanded group picnic areas and a boathouse shelter / pavilion.
