This historical farmhouse contains a great homestead museum featuring an original home built in the late 1860s. Pay close attention to the wallpaper, which has mica embedded in it to reflect light. Exposed areas in the walls show the mud and sticks used to insulate the building.

The museum is open May through September on Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. and by appointment.
