The Durant House is recognized as Kane County's own "Little House on the Prairie." It beckons visitors of all ages and interest to enjoy a “hands on” experience of an earlier era. We also offer special programs designed to highlight a prairie family's routines of work and play throughout the year. Some of the highlights include Making Textiles: Men and Women at work (July 17), Pickling Party (Aug. 7) and Making Bread & Butter (August 28) to name a few. Check website to confirm program status and museum driving directions.  Private tours are available for interested groups
