The Old Barn Club and the Golden Age of Hills and Dales Park
MOUND MUSEUM LECTURE SERIES SPOTLIGHTS
THE OLD BARN CLUB AND THE GOLDEN AGE OF HILLS AND DALES PARK — Join us as we step back into the pastoral setting of early Van Buren Township for a trip through John H. Patterson’s sprawling country park. We’ll review the major events occurring in Hills and Dales Park, trace its important equestrian history, and explore the Old Barn Club, which served as the hub of the park’s early social activities. We’ll also visit the nine Adirondack-style camps that hosted countless picnics and parties during the park’s heydey.
