For any writers working on pioneer-era stories, or for any history lovers in general, I highly recommend a trip to Conner Prairie Living History Museum, in Fishers, Indiana (suburban Indianapolis). The museum has four main areas currently: a preserved historic village restored to 1830s Indiana, a Lenape (Delaware) Indian camp, an indoor museum that is open year-round, and a re-entactment of an 1859 hot air balloon ride first done in Lafayette, Indiana. It is named after William Conner, who was a fur trapper/trader who married first a Lenape woman and later a settler and lived between both cultures. The village features private homes, including the Conner home, a school, several shops, an inn, and a barn with goats, sheep, pigs, horses, and chickens.
