Prophetstown State Park and Farmstead...

We stopped at Prophetstown State Park, near Lafayette, Indiana, on our drive home on Sunday, 3rd September. Here we visited the Historic Prophetstown Farmstead as well as the visitor's centre. Riaan enjoyed seeing all the animals at the farm as well as the snakes, turtles, and (stuffed) owls in the visitor's centre. After leaving the state park, we briefly visited the site of the Battle of Tippecanoe before continuing on our way.
