Visitors to the Historic Site will see the archeological site, with many of the artifacts actually found on the site; a blacksmith shop; John Deere's home which is authentically furnished with actual household objects that show how pioneers cooked, cleaned, bathed, and spent leisure hours; a visitor's center depicting the life of John Deere, the opening of the prairie, and the development of his plow; a gift shop; and a natural prairie as it existed over a century ago.
