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.
Join us Saturday June 27 from 1:00-2:30 at the Atkins-Johnson Farm and Museum as we enjoy the second tea of the summer!
