Event Venue: Little Red Schoolhouse Nature Center

Connect with the historic past of the Palos Hills at The Little Red Schoolhouse. In 1886 the present schoolhouse building, originally located on the Black Oak Trail at old 99th Street, replaced a log cabin school. Now hikers enjoy country lanes once used by its student. In 2010 a new visitor center with additional live animals and exhibits, children’s activity room and more joined the old school. Learn more about Little Red Schoolhouse Nature Center >
