Celebrate the Stupey Cabin’s 170th Birthday!

September 16 @ 4:00 pm - 7:00 pm

The Stupey Log Cabin is an important symbol of our City’s history. Have a sneak peak inside the Cabin as it enters its last phase of preservation! Enjoy family activities such as story-telling, poetry, campfires, s’more making, pony rides, a petting zoo, sing-a-longs, plus LIVE music! Food & beverage are available for purchase, and don’t miss the biergarten from Ravinia Brewing Company. FREE to attend.

The Stupey Cabin is entering the last phase of fundraising as they try to reach the goal of $110,000 to finish cabin restoration and begin educational programming, teaching children about the life and times of those early pioneers and the family’s who came here when it was no more than a deep forest. Donations of all sizes welcome. To sponsor the event or be involved, please call 847-432-6000.
