Those attending may learn what life was like for Charles Lindbergh when growing up on the family farm a century ago during the First World War. A costumed character portraying Lindbergh’s mother, Evangeline, will provide insights to her son’s interests in aviation, technology, and the natural environment. Visitors will also have the chance to hear stories about the Lindbergh family from Gustav Gerts, who lived in the tenant’s house in 1917-1918, and Mary Hannah Stevens, whose family rented from the Lindberghs from 1906 to 1913. Visitors also have the chance to try their hand and some of the chores young Lindbergh did around the farm.
