We had such a wonderful time touring this site and reading about the history. We received a tour from Robert who was so friendly, knowledgeable and seemed to really care about the site and history. It was such an enjoyable visit. Highly recommended to all!

This is a great place for a wedding in a barn.... It's especially fun if you have youngsters with you. This farm has animals and gardens to enjoy. Gardeners were still working when the outdoor wedding was held.

It was a nice family day. A place to bring the kids. A place that on the ride home was a common topic discussed during the ride. Had communication going on with the kids and that a plus anytime.

Gibbs Farm shows the life many of our ancestors went through when they first arrived in Minnesota. The farm is right in town and is very geared to children. A great place to bring the kids.
