A Meal For The Ages At Living History Farms

A pot roast, some mashed potatoes and homemade rolls slathered in butter—really, what’s not to love?

The historic dinners are back on the table at Living History Farms in Urbandale, where you can pull up a chair and enjoy a home-cooked meal from a time before anybody worried about something called “cholesterol.”

You can take a horse-drawn wagon to the 1900 Farm, where you can dig into a hearty meal next to the wood-burning stove. Or if you’re feeling fancy, make reservations for dinner or Victorian tea at the Flynn Mansion in the 1876 town of Walnut Hill. And don’t worry: The staff will show you which forks to use for each course.
