blackberry historical farm in aurora is a nice place to go to for a short trip.it is a cross between a historical village and a (very) small amusement park it contains several small shops designed like late 19th- early 20th century buildings the shops are quite fascinating and include a blacksmith shop, a sewing shop, a pottery shop, and a wagon display. there is also a 1 room schoolhouse (ask why dunce caps were conical). on the very small amusement park side there is a hayless hayride, a train ride, pony rides, and others. there is also a petting zoo and a somewhat pricey gift shop selling items such as authentic homemade pottery, rugs, and maple leaf ornaments. the giftshop also sells nostalgic "looking back" books covering the years 1930-2001. overall its pretty nice except for a rainy day
