WEST LAFAYETTE, Ind. (WLFI) — Imagine what American life was like almost 100-years ago. The Farm at Prophetstown gave the community that opportunity.

Exhibitors brought out the old-time cars, horses, and activities that you'd find in the 1920s. Event coordinator Lauren Reed said it's all about learning and family fun.

The Farm often holds events to showcase life in the olden days. It's done with a twist also incorporating the family-friendly activities of today.

Reed said she hopes it's eye-opening for the kids who come.

“I hope the kids just see that you can have fun without a bunch of electronics and fancy stuff without all the bells and whistles, you can still have a really good time,” said Reed.

Reed said this event continues to grow in exhibitors and attendees every year.
