Dr. William G. Murray dreamed of a working agricultural museum. He described it as “not just a dusty place where you see yesterday’s utensils and machinery under glass. You see things being used, a recreation of things in action, stretching from the past through the present and into the future.” Living History Farms was that vision.

In 1967, Living History Farms Foundation was formed as a nonprofit institution.
