Explore the changes in society at the turn of the century with Living History Farms as we welcome this traveling exhibit from the Gilder-Lehrman Institute of American History. 

In the 35 years before 1900, America was transformed into a modern, industrial society. For many, the new industrial order ruptured past ways of life. During the Progressive Era (1900–1917) a broad-ranging reform movement worked to make government more democratic, to lessen the effects of industrialization and to regulate business. Exhibit panels depict letters, cartoons, pictures and broadsides that illustrate America’s transformation into a modern, industrial society.
