What are some fun things to see and do?

A working farm since 1813, the Farmers' Museum lets you discover what life was like for hardworking farmers that helped build our country. Visit over two dozen historic buildings that have been restored, including a tavern, blacksmith's shop, farmstead, printing office, pharmacy and general store. Watch the blacksmith hammer out a nail from the fire, see how early agricultural tools worked and hop on a horse-drawn carriage. Children love the historic games and the farmstead, where they can feed and pet the sheep being raised for wool.
