A main exhibit building and fifteen historic structures associated with a nineteenth century farming community bring the fascinating story of agriculture to life. More than 4,000 artifacts are displayed in the main exhibit building - from butter churns to threshers, from an eighteenth century log house to the first broiler chicken house. The artifacts convey the story of technological growth and change in Delaware and Delmarva's agricultural industries and farm home life through permanent and temporary exhibitions. Some of the historic buildings include a mill, train station, schoolhouse, country store,blacksmith and wheelwright shop, a farmhouse with garden and outbuildings, a barbarshop and a church. Collectively they illustrate a day in the life of a nineteenth century farmer.
