On Saturday, June 18, experience the nightlife of 150 years ago during a ranger-led tour of the historic Bailly Homestead in Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore. During the program, learn about the lifestyles of the fur traders and native Potawatomi before touring the first floor of the Bailly House while it is lit by candlelight. Meet at the Bailly Homestead/Chellberg Farm parking lot at 7:30 pm. This program includes a short 1/3 mile-long hike to the homestead. Allow about one hour to visit the site. No reservations are necessary. Insect repellent is recommended and be sure to bring a flashlight for the hike back to the parking lot after the program.

This program is part of the year-long celebration of both the 50th anniversary of Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore and the National Park Service’s Centennial. Candlelight tours of the homestead will also be offered on July 16 and August 20, at 7:30 pm.

The Bailly Homestead/Chellberg Farm parking lot is located at 618 N. Mineral Springs Road (just north of US Highway 20) in Porter, Indiana. For more information on this or other programs at Indiana Dunes National Lakeshore, call 219-395-1882 or check the park’s website at
