The Farmers' Museum

America's history comes alive-daily chores are carried out at the working farm while commerce flourishes at the Village Crossroad. Visitors experience the interplay among trades, village life and agriculture in New York State circa 1845. The museum, one of the oldest living history museums, features exhibits, craft demonstrations and hand-on activities that bring history to life.
