Explore the importance of corn to farmers in the 19th century. Help shell and grind corn at the 1900 Farm and see the tools needed to process corn in the past. Take a peek in the farmhouse as staff prepare a farmhands’ dinner, take a horse-drawn wagon ride, and watch harvesting machinery demonstrations.
