The Homeplace

See draft animals at work, learn about the kitchen garden, or participate in the preparation of the noon meal. Watch as craftsmen work wood in the old fashioned way. Find out how wooden shingles were made and see them in use on the buildings of the farm. Also, a variety of special events, such as the Pickin’ Party, Independence Day Celebration and Trade Fair are presented each year.

The Homeplace features heirloom plants in the gardens and fields as well as historic breeds of animals. Enjoy learning about the daily activities and chores performed by the family members. Ask questions and get answers.  We love to talk with our visitors and share our passion for the rich history of the region of western Tennessee and Kentucky known as “Between the Rivers.”
