Welcome to Willoughby Farm

  Willoughby Heritage Farm and Conservation Reserve is a public park where we've recreated an atmosphere inspired by 1950's farming-life, complete with tractors, barns, a 1930 Sears Catalog Farm House, and even live animals like pigs, chickens, and goats!  We have over 30-acres of wild-life preserve complete with hiking trails, bridges, and vistas overlooking the prarie and other areas. We're open daily to the public, and since we're a public park admission is always free!  So come on and explore a little of what life was like in the 1950's here in Collinsville.
