Route 1, Box 479, Hwy 62, Point Pleasant West Virginia 25550
Located on a fifty-acre tract of land located 4 miles north of Point Pleasant, it's dedicated to the state's early pioneer and farm life heritage. Since its start in 1976 with one building and a few farm implements, it has grown to be a "working museum," with early farm life represented not only by artifacts but also by the museums year-round operations. Crops can be grown, harvested and processed using nineteenth-century equipment and methods. During festival weekends, there are services in the church and demonstrations of pioneer crafts such as spinning, weaving, sewing, rendering soap and making brooms & molasses. It is a complete replica of an early farm community.
