Attractions

Caroline Wheels of Time Museum

The Wheels of Time Museum is a wonderful collection of historic buildings from the Caroline area. It is located just east of the Village of Caroline on Highway 54. It will be open to visitors on Saturdays and Sundays from noon to 5 pm. from the end of June to early September. Its well-tended gardens, historic buildings, and engaging exhibits will capture your imagination.

The main building is the old Caroline elementary school from the 1950s, which holds a permanent exhibit with memorabilia consistent with the area's history.

The John Trunell House and Anderson Brothers’ fur trade cabin are examples of pioneer log buildings common on early farms. Other buildings include the Village Office and Fire Hall and the Big Bend one-room schoolhouse and teacherage. The jail cell and the immaculate 1958 fire truck are popular attractions.

The Museum recently added the historic Chedderville All Hallows Church to the site. The 70-year-old church was moved from its original location in the Dovercourt area.

Mural Project of General Store

Community members and local artists came together to address the appearance of a disused gas station owned by the Village. The result was an attractive mural of a General Store on the Cowboy Trail, completed in 2021. The community also has plans to enhance the area with benches, landscaping, and pop-up kiosks. The Village sees this project as a catalyst and mini-hub along a revitalized Main Street.

Bighorn Stampede and Parade

Every May long weekend, Caroline hosts the Bighorn Stampede and Parade. The Stampede starts on Friday and continues to Sunday night. The weekend includes rodeo, a pancake breakfast on Main Street, a Christian Cowboy Church on Sunday morning and beer gardens every night. The exciting Parade continues along Caroline Main Street on Saturday morning.

The annual event continued for 86 years but was cancelled in 2021 due to the Covid 19 pandemic. It will again take place in 2022
