Afternoon Tea on the Farm

The Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum will be closed Saturday, April 19, 2014. FREE museum admission on Saturday, April 26 in celebration of our 1 year anniversary.

Welcome to the Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum!
 

This is a place where you can explore the history of our community, ask questions, and connect with the past in your own way. Discover the house that grew out of a single-room log cabin and learn from the exhibits inside. Enjoy the beautiful acres of preserved farmland, take the trail to the historic Big Shoal Cemetery and look for wildlife along the way. Explore what's growing as you visit the heirloom garden, apple orchard, or pumpkin patch. Once home to many people from 1831-2004, the farm stands as a wonderful reminder that the past can still be present and will always have stories to share.


Current Exhibit: "Victorian Love Tokens; Tokens of Affection from Days Gone By"


How did the Victorians tell someone they loved them? Why with coins, cards, gloves, fans and other gifts of course! The standard love token began as a single coin smoothed or sanded down then engraved with initials, names, sayings, specials dates or images. These and other Victorian customs are on display in this special exhibit now through May 10, 2014.
