The House

Visit the Gibson Farmhouse to experience life in the 1920’s. This is the last historical component of our facility. The house is set up like a traditional farmhouse, complete with furniture and baking.

Blacksmith Museum

The repair shop contains tools and equipment used to fix the things we break! The ag mechanic is also handy on the forge at blacksmithing. His schedule is busy, but if you are flexible, we can usually sign him up for your tour.
