Growing Up in Lake County


Produced for the Lake County Discovery Museum in Lake County, Illinois.  A Five-Part Video series used to introduce visitors to various sections of the exhibition guided by Bess Dunn.  

Description from the Lake County Website:  Ever wondered what life was like for children in the past? Growing Up in Lake County shares the everyday and extraordinary stories of children who grew up in the county. Try your hand at living and working on a pioneer homestead. Discover what life was like for a young drummer boy in the Civil War. Learn about the first African-American family to settle in the county. Attend school in a one-room schoolhouse and play as children did over 100 years ago. Through real artifacts, historical accounts and hands-on experiences, children connect the stories of the past to their own lives in this new exhibition for families.
