Bringing History to Life

Welcome to Willow Springs!

THE LIVING HISTORY PARK is a recreated village representing the period between 1735–1785, run by the non-profit Olde Towne Preservation Association and volunteers. 100% of funding comes from donations and grants. Reclaimed from a water works dump site, the village has numerous permanent buildings, including the Willow Spring Meeting House, the Blacksmith Forge, the Spring House Tavern, the Grist Mill, Thompson Academy, the Perry Hill Cabin, and many others.

Bring the Park to Life

Take an Audio Tour of the Park

When the park is not teaming with historical interpreters, you can take an audio tour using your phone.  The tour gives you details about each of the buildings in the park and shows you pictures of what's inside.  You can also take this tour from the comfort of your couch. 

Have fun with History!

The Living History Park board game is an entertaining way to learn about colonial times and support the Park.  Games are available for purchase in the Mercantile.  A second set of cards, “The Birth of Our Nation,” is also available for purchase.
