Step back in time to the 1800's and experience an Evening on the Farm at Hickory Hollow Interpretive Center at O’Bannon Woods State Park. The 1800's Living Pioneer Farmstead will be presented on Saturday, August 4th from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm.  As you listen to the live music, walk around and find in the farmstead a working blacksmith shop and cooper shop, summer kitchen, pioneer home, trappers shed, tomahawk throwing with a "pioneer dunking booth", leather worker, weavers, quilters, spinners, and other pioneer demonstrations.

Make your way into the barn at 6:00 pm to watch and listen as we show you how hay was baled in the 1850's as we operate a unique 1850 Haypress. The Haypress is run by one of our oxen, Forest or Gump. The demonstration, held only nine days each year, will be at 6:00 pm on Saturday, August 4th. In the event of mechanical difficulty with the 165-year old haypress, a special tour of the press, draft animals, and barn is given in its place. The haypress, a unique piece of Indiana history, is an Indiana invention!
