Bailly Homestead and Chellberg Farm

These two historic sites sit nearly side-by-side. Bailly Homestead is named for Joseph Bailly, the first known non-native region resident, who set up a fur-trading post here around 1820. After viewing the homestead, hike to nearby Chellberg Farm, which looks like it did in the early 1900s, and explore the restored Mnoke Prairie on the Little Calumet Trail.
