Explore the farm. Listen to the barnyard sounds. See bacon and ham curing in the smokehouse and preserved vegetables in the canning shed. Experience everyday 19th century-style farm-like activities, from planting and harvesting to cooking, spinning, quilt making, and more. All structures have authentic furnishings of the period.

Friendly staff members share the history as they perform daily activities - whether in farmhouses, fields, sawmill, turpentine still, school house, blacksmith's shop, or the grist mill. Stroll up Main Street to the Feed and Seed store, the print shop and drug store.
