The Lucas Farms History Day is chock full of fun things to do around the Lucas Farms Neighborhood! Pony rides, free burgers and hotdogs, bicycle tours of the area and much more are all available. See below for a full schedule of events.
The JCHS’s contribution this year is a display of antique automobiles (on loan from the Antique Car Museum of Iowa) that help tell the unique story of Iowa City life in the 1800s and early 1900s.
The Master Gardeners will provide tours of the three gardens at Plum Grove: the Flower Garden, the Wildflower Garden, and the Kitchen Garden.
Activities at Plum Grove are free; see the schedule below for details of community activity prices.
