About Conner Prairie
Conner Prairie is an outdoor living history museum featuring first- and third-person Midwest interpretations of America's indigenous and settlement stories. On the land originally settled by William Conner and his first wife, Mekinges — daughter of Delaware Chief William Anderson — the museum is old school but not behind on the times. With solar panels and a wind turbine, Conner Prairie features a mixture of the new and the old. Historic areas provide authentic, unique and entertaining educational experiences, including Prairietown, Lenape Village and the Museum Center. The state-of-the-art amphitheater hosts Indianapolis Symphony Orchestra’s Symphony on the Prairie. There newest exhibit, 1863 Civil War Journey: Raid on Indiana, is a chance to let living history not only unfold before your eyes, but surround you.
