We visited Heritage Farm last year during the fall and had a great time! We pet the horses, fed the chickens, made some arts and crafts and rode on the tractor! It's a fun place to visit during the Fall Festival when it's packed with people and the weather is nicer!

So totally enjoyed my time here. The animals are beautiful! The donkey stated hee hawing when I walked away...so cute. Interesting old schoolhouse on the property that was moved from East Texas. Also, the original farmhouse with all kinds of old timey household implements was fascinating. Well worth a visit.

The house was built in 1891 and sits on its original foundation and acreage. Originally around 400 acres, the current museum complex is about 4 acres. The museum complex contains original buildings, like the sheep barns, and is... More

Went on an adventure back in time with my 6 1/2 yr old nephew. (Definitely take the guide tour or forget it!) The guided tour starts with a short video of photos with good narrative about the farm comparative farms. Our guide was excellent; he was interesting open for questions. The main house is air conditioned! Nicely presented, no cheesy... More

The Victorian home which was Ammie Wilson's home can be toured with an excellent docent and the acreage grounds can also be toured which has farm animals, vegetable garden, blackland grasses and flower garden, old school house, blacksmith shop, chicken coup, and much more. Do you and your family a big favor and spend the day here and see how... More

I'm not sure why they call this a museum, as there's only 1 building that you're free to walk into and see historical artifacts. There is a house that you can pay an additional $4 to see, but they only give tours at 1:30, so if you're not there at that time, all you can see is the outside. The... More

Heritage Farmstead is a great look at how people lived on a farm in the previous centuries. Kids love the animals; adults like the beautiful greenery. Great place to rent for a special party or church get-together.

House tours of the beautiful 1892 Farrell-Wilson House are at 10:30 in the summer and 1:30 in the winter. After watching a short video which includes some tantalizing details about the family, we were led all through the 14 room Victorian home by a costumed docent who gave us the story of the mother and daughter and the men who...
