The Farmers' Museum

America's history comes alive-daily chores are carried out at the working farm while commerce flourishes in the country village. 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 in the U.S., features exhibits, craft demonstrations and hands-on activities that bring history to life.

This fall, partake in one of the Museum’s popular autumn events such as Harvest Festival (Sept 17-18), Weaving Weekend (Sept 24-25), Blacksmith Weekend (Oct 1-2), and Tractor Fest (Oct 8-9). October also features Things That Go Bump in the Night - Ghost Tours (Oct 14, 15, 21, 22, 28, 29). Check out the EVENTS CALENDAR for all the details on exciting happenings throughout the season!
