Our collection includes both domestic and agricultural material culture from turn-of-the-twentieth century farms. It is highlighted by examples of logging jitterbugs, a Model A tractor conversion, mid-century gasoline powered tractors, horse drawn equipment, horse carriages, wagons, logging bobsleds, sleighs, belt-driven farm equipment, blacksmithing forges, hand woodworking and metal working tools, a shingle mill, apple cider presses, a mid-19th century wood planer, and much more. In addition to the tangible, we have recently created an oral history archives that captures the first hand accounts and stories of ice harvesting, blacksmithing, logging, farming, domesticity on the family farm, Yankee ingenuity and more.
