Have you ever wanted to travel back in time?

Well you can in Conway, at the Living History Farm.

Visitors to the L.W. Paul Living History Farm in Conway step back in to the early 1900s.

"A lot of folks still remember some of the things we do here," said Wayne Skipper with the L.W. Paul Living History Farm.

This time of the year, springtime, is sewing seeds time.

"In the springtime, the farmer in the time period 1900-1955 was going about getting his plants in the field and sewing the seed so he would have food to eat," said Skipper.

On this farm, Skipper uses a mule, not a tractor, and visitors can watch history in action this Saturday for Spring Planting Day.

Skipper said it's important to remember the way things were.

"You think it's not that long ago," said Skipper, "but many things have changed because of technology, and sometimes we forget where we came from with all the conveniences we have, and don't realize the efforts it took to get us where we are today."

And today, those efforts are still alive at the living history farm.

The Spring Planting Day event is this Saturday, April 2, from 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. at the L.W. Paul Living History Farm in Conway off Highway 701.
