horse drawn wagon ride at 1900 farmA horse-drawn wagon carries you to the farmhouse, where the smell of freshly baked rolls and hot cider welcomes you. Enjoy a hearty home-cooked meal by the warmth of the stove served family style by our historical interpreters.

Make room for dessert with a lantern-lit trip outside to our historic barn, built in 1889. Or stay inside and read the 1895 Montgomery Ward catalog and play a game of checkers. After dessert, bundle up for the wagon ride back to your car.
