We visited here recently and it was a pleasant experience. The tour of the house and grounds was enjoyable and educational. The joy has been carefully and lovingly restored to its former elegance. There are also out buildings to tour and the children's favorites, farm animals including chickens, turkeys, sheep, goats, pigs and donkeys.

Authentic farmhouse in the middle of Plano...so much to see, all as it was in the 19th century. Great for all ages, and there are many interesting events held on the grounds.

While it is small, they have so much information there. The kids and I went to tour around. They had a great time (5 & 3 were their ages). It did rain while we were there, but there was a great time still had by all. Look forward to going back again soon!

The Farmstead is a collection of buildings that have been brought to the main home to preserve them for others to see. They have demonstrations of Blacksmithing and leatherworking, and organic gardening. Worth the visit, if you would like to see an original Plano home, and other items. Many BSA Eagle projects are used to support the Museum with donated... More

If you want to see what life used to be like come visit this quaint farm in the middle of Plano. There is a fabulous main house with original furniture and tools and a barn with animals and a real garden. It really is stepping back to a simpler time and there are volunteers that will explain the history and... More

The kids will enjoy the grounds and numerous outbuidlings. On weekends, they might see blacksmiths or play a game. And of course there are farm... More

I have heard so much about this place over the years and finally decided to visit on a quiet Wednesday afternoon with my son. We both really enjoyed this outing. We participated in the afternoon tour (lasted about two hours) and I’m so glad that we did. Our tour guide was wonderful and took us through the historic home and... More

A lovely house from the time period surrounded by a farmstead. Kids can feed the chickens, "milk" a cow, sit in an old time schoolhouse, and basically get a feel of what life was like back when.

I went based on the reviews and i just didn't see the big deal. I guess you can't argue for the admission price but there was not a lot to the place. Good points are that it was clean.

Visit a living working farm museum. See what it's like to raise vegetables in your garden and prepare them for the table. Everyone had a chore to do on the working farm located in the heart of Plano.
