Reviewed August 19, 2011

The Wessels Living History Farm is a great place with something for all ages. My grandchildren, aged 4 and 12, enjoyed seeing the large collection of tractors, feeding the farm animals, and seeing the old farmhouse. For the adults, it was fun to see how a house would have been furnished in the 1920's and to remember how farm life was before all the huge machinery and modern conveniences of today. The volunteers who conduct the tours are very friendly and knowledgeable, and were accommodating and answered the many questions that we all had. I highly recommend this living museum.
