What's New?

2018 Skeletons on Review!

We couldn't keep them in the basement any longer. Yes, our skeletons made their way upstairs and this year they want to show you some of their favorite movies scenes. So running through October 30th, stop by the Farmhouse during regular museum hours and see them posing in their favorite movie scenes.

Also this year, we are open FIVE evenings (October 26-30th) from 6:30-8pm.


Summer Flea Markets at the Farmhouse

Thank you to all vendors and shoppers that made our summer flea markets

a resounding success again!

See you next year!!
