Went there to kill an hour and spent 3 hours visiting; could have stayed longer. It really was very interesting. Bucolic setting, very beautiful and peaceful. Staff friendly and informative. If you have any interest in how people lived in the 18th and 19th century, you will surely enjoy this place. On premises is a barn built in 1780, as... More

I am sure this sight would be an awesome time IF you are there during the height of season when they had all kinds of living history events going on. When we were there we paid for entrance to the sight and found that vast majority of buildings were locked. Staff just sort of shrugged about it. Make sure there... More

The farm museum always has something going on. Beside the museum there is a large pond that is stocked with trout. You can pack a lunch or bring a grill and enjoy the day. Kids will love it!!!

Craftsmen/women keep traditions such as blacksmithing, weaving and even making broom alive. In years past the farm also functioned as an almshouse, which was a place for homeless to live and work the farm. Adjacent to the... More

WE visited during the Fall steam show last weekend. We came on Friday, but were a little late for the events. There were quite a very activities scheduled for Saturday but I am not sure they got it done, due to the rain. If you like steam engines and old tractors, this is the place for you. Some of these...

This was a wonderful museum. It was a place we revisited, as well. There is an annual festival here and it is terrific. It is great for all ages, but some areas will be tough for scooters or wheel chairs.
