About the Museum:

The Carroll County Farm Museum provides the public with the opportunity to experience mid-nineteenth century rural life. The Museum grounds include original farm structures, such as the Farmhouse and a bank barn, built in 1852-53. Other buildings include a 1700s Log Barn, Smokehouse, Broom Shop, Saddlery, Springhouse, Living History Center, Wagon Shed, General Store exhibit, Firehouse, and a One-room Schoolhouse.

A guided tour through the seven decorated rooms in the Farmhouse is provided. The Large Hall Showcase and Bowfront China Closet in the Farmhouse feature special displays and collections which rotate bi-monthly. A self-guided walking tour pamphlet, push button recordings, and signage provide the visitor with information in the various exhibit buildings. Present exhibits support the Museum by presenting artifacts with appropriate interpretation, both to show how they once looked, and how they were utilized by farmers and their families in the history of agriculture in Carroll County. Visitors are given the opportunity to explore the Museum’s collections of horse-powered machines and farm implements used for plowing, planting, and harvesting during the 19th Century.
