A truly unforgettable place! Bring the kids, learn about farming, view old tools and garden plants, or go to one of their summer events...like pressing apple cider with an old fashioned hand press.

Though the buildings are run down, what's in them is well worth seeing. Propaganda flyer from the Spanish American War, advertisings and clippings neatly displayed and well worth reading (don't miss the Advice to Wife and the Circus ones) and great collection of farm equipment and old clothing.

If you like the old farming days. , this place is a must see.Most likely not open in the winter, altho check the website for the schedule of happenings. Pay attention to the detailed garden. ( which plant is what ) In my opinion this is very interesting.

I love this museum and property. If you love authentic REAL historical places like I do you will love it. I really like how the family property and things are from the place and not perfect. See how people really lived in the North Country. Plenty for men and women to enjoy. For the ladies, antique needle work abounds and... More

The Poore Farm is the real deal: enter a time warp and emerge 100+ years ago, to a world without electricity, with few modern items, where hard work and grit were required to make it through each day. It is all here, in a charming setting. There are also hiking trails. Be sure to speak with the docents, who are... More
