Get a glimpse of life on an upstate New York farm — just as it was 150 years ago!
This living-history museum brings 19th-century rural America to life, offering families the opportunity to experience aspects of farmer’s lives 150 years ago. The site sits on land that has been a working farm since 1813, when James Fenimore Cooper owned it.
The museum demonstrates everyday occupations, from broom making and weaving, to milking cows and blacksmithing. In spring, newborn calves, lambs and ducklings especially appeal to children. Hands-on kids’ projects cultivate an understanding of our rural heritage.
Located just over a mile up Highway 80 from the National Baseball Hall of Fame and Museum in Cooperstown, NY, this living museum makes for a great doubleheader weekend trip for your family!
