A Museum & Visitor Center
was needed. None of the original farmhouses still existed, so another building was sought.
It happened that a suitable house in downtown Fairfield was available, so arrangements were made to move it to this farmstead to be converted into our Museum, Visitor Center, and gift shop.
Much renovation of the Museum/ Visitor Center was needed before the doors could be opened. See photos of the renovation process
The Museum & Visitor Center opened in 2011 with displays, photos, artifacts, and stories about the farm's history, along with stories and artifacts concerning early Fairfield industries related to agriculture.
Also, you will find visitor information about Jefferson County. See photos of the Open House in Oct 2011
