Farm life

Visitors to the Farm will have the opportunity to sample the everyday life of the farm family living during this era. Guests on this working farm will be able to observe activities that would have been commonplace on traditional farms. Plowing with mules, making lye soap, grinding grits, blacksmiths, curing meat, preserving vegetables, milking cows, and harvesting crops are only a few of the demonstrations to see at the Farm.

The Farm was established with the mission to preserve and protect the materials and objects relating to the history and culture of the family in the period of 1900-1955 and to teach the history through interpretative displays in a working traditional farm setting.
