Oak Lawn Community High School students Kathleen Mancillas, Nayfah Thnaibat, Julia Bugaj and Adam Smith recently attended the Trail of History event, where they saw teacher Phyllis Dickinson portray pioneer life.

The Trail of History is a living history interpretive event. Interpreters from across the country portray and demonstrate life as it was from 1670 to 1850 in the former Northwest Territory, which encompasses present-day Illinois, Wisconsin, Indiana, Michigan, Ohio and portions of eastern Minnesota.

The event’s focus is to show the interrelationship between nature, man and cultural development. The McHenry County Conservation District presents the Trail of History with the assistance of numerous volunteers and other areas and re-enactors from across the country.
