Filming that 14 weeks in summer 1988, proved to be more challenging than one could ever imagine. Drought conditions threatened the production every step of the way. Despite mother nature throwing “curve balls” at each and every turn, production was complete in August 1988. With the movie’s premier on April 21, 1989, no one could possibly predict what was yet to come. In 2012, and some 23 years later the Field of Dreams movie site has entertained well in excess of 1 million visitors. A tourist destination, yet so much more. A place where all who visit have the opportunity to set the stage for their own individual experience. There are as many different reasons people come here as there are people.
