A Fall Wine Festival In Manhattan, Illinois
The Manhattan Park District Foundation is proud to announce the ANNUAL ROUND BARN FARM WINE FESTIVAL to be held at the Baker-Koren Round Barn Farm located on Route 52, the North Gateway to Manhattan, Illinois. THE BAKER-KOREN ROUND BARN FARM PARK preserves history dated back to the 1832 settlers of Will County, Manhattan, Illinois. The historical 100 foot diameter Round Barn was built in 1898 using the lumber from Chicago’s Columbian World Exposition after it was dismantled in 1893. The Oak Trees are what is left of the Five Mile Oak Grove and is documented to be at one time a heavily traveled trail between Hickory Creek and the Des Plaines River. Jackson Creek is adjacent to the property and has a Class B Illinois Stream Status. The 103 acres contain multiple uses; a few being, passive recreation which includes the open space, stream, wetlands, riparian habitat and the oak grove. The active recreational area will offer baseball/softball field, forest themed playground, tennis court, volleyball, fitness circuit, trails, horseshoes, 18 hole disc golf course and fishing pier. The Historical Buildings and educational opportunities are sure to draw a large diversity of visitors from all over.
Proceeds from this event will go toward the planned preservation and restoration of the Historical Buildings, open space, oak grove, wet lands and planned recreation.
