Dairies to Prairies

 d2p-logoDairies to Prairies tells the story of Elgin’s dairy heritage. The project will also explore how these former dairy farms have come under pressure from suburban development, modern day agriculture and efforts to restore natural prairies. This story will be presented through a feature-length documentary film and companion traveling exhibit. This documentary film and traveling exhibit is being created by The Elgin History Museum and Grindstone Productions. Become a fan of the Dairies to Prairies Facebook Page to get a chance to see rare photos and video trailers in your news feed.
