Welcome to the old farmhouse!

Discover a home that began as a single-room log cabin.

Enjoy the beautiful acres of preserved farmland, walk the trail to the historic Big Shoal Cemetery and look for wildlife along the way.

Take home sunflowers, pumpkins and sweet corn each seasonally grown on site or visit the museum's store for local gifts.
