Somewhat disappointing--property has promise, but county keeps things on the cheap side.

Outbulidings such as stables also on site, sometimes with artizans...More

There is actually an interesting museum under the cover of a large home. There is a livestock display outdoors and a museum with historic farm equipment in a large, well maintained barn. The better news is that venue offers a lot of activities e.g., a...More

We tried to visit this place several times, but it was closed during these visits. Located near the Carrol Hospital, it seems to be a good place to visit on a warm, sunny day. There are several buildings that must contain the exhibits. Also nearby...More

I have a fond place in my heart for the Farm Life and this place helps to keep it. I enjoy visiting when in the area. I really enjoy the Mason Dixon Historical Associations Farm Show this past weekend.

There's a little bit of everything at the Farm Museum. The complex used to be the county Alms House, so there's lots of history there. There are extensive collections of farm implements and displays offering a fascinating look into local agriculture, like the wormseed oil...More
