C. H. Moore Homestead was the former residence of John Moore Bishop and his wife Miverva. It was established in 1867, featuring Italianate and Second Empire architecture. The estate was purchased by Clifton H. Moore towards the end of the 19th Century, and made additions to the house; the major one being the west wing library. The house was purchased and restored by the DeWitt County Museum Association in 1967, and has been functioning as a tourist attraction. Since 1968, every fall, the Apple N' Pork Festival has been celebrated with great gusto at this homestead. Participate in this festival and get entertained by musicians, artworks, contests and delicious food.
