This exhibit was put together over a period of years and has been donated by the individual to the City of Lindale. It consists of many items that offer a glimpse of life in yesteryear when work was dominate rather than mostly pleasure. Many outbuildings have been built to display all of the items, along with some calming walking paths... More

My husband and I met our son and his family in Lindale today. We had lunch and then we were looking for something to do so we could spend some time together before we each headed back home . We happened across the museum and decided it was the perfect outing. There were 5 adults and 3 small children, we... More

My husband and I visited on Valentine's Day 2014. We absolutely loved it! The grounds are beautiful, and include a large barn with antiques showing various aspects of daily life - cooking, medicine, music, farming, etc. There is a pond with ducks, a walking path and an old church in the woods. You can take a look at old tractors,... More

We drove by this on our way somewhere else and decided to stop and check it out. There are several buildings to go through, but the main museum building was the most enjoyable for us. (Of course it was about 38 degrees and drizzling outside, so that may have influenced us!) The main museum building houses tools and memorabilia from... More

This museum focuses mainly on agriculture of this area. There are lots of displays of farm equipment, antique kitchen equipment, old musical instruments and general antiques. The grounds are nice with a large pond with ducks to feed (the kids loved it). It is worth a couple of hours if you are in the area.

This museum has an extensive collection of antique farm and home equipment. We really enjoyed the displays. Helpful volunteers are there to answer questions. Don't miss the quaint little chapel that is a short walk from the museum.

The tractors were nice, the water stagnant in the pond. In front of the place is a simulated graveyard with crosses depicting the gravesites of aborted babies! Very, very offensive. My wife was personally offended as a woman. These folks use this place as a front for their societal viewpoints. Avoid at all cost, unless you want to be offended.

Being raised on a farm, there were many implements that I not only recognized but I had actually used! Plows, cultivators, corn shellers, cream separators, saws,and hand tools just to name a few, all in immaculate condition. This place has the best collection of old and antique farm tractors, implements and tools I have ever seen in one location! Parrott... More
