LAPORTE | The quiet concentration permeated the quilter’s cabin. The ladies were working diligently on the beautiful quilts – an image straight out of the past.

Pioneerland, located at the LaPorte County Fairgrounds, is a step back in time to life during the 1800s to 1840s.

The village, funded and operated by volunteers, includes a log cabin, blacksmith shop, antique post and beam barn, one-room school house, post office, general store, farm bureau cabin, pioneer heritage garden, outdoor cooking kitchen, artisan barn and wash house.

The attraction began in 1995 as part of the LaPorte County Fair’s 150th anniversary.
