Visited this mountain farm setting in August 2018. Interesting buildings are placed around the property. Nice for comfortable walking. Good experience for the kids to learn about mountain farming in the past.

The barn would be a wonderful place to have a family get together or wedding. Wonderful displays of local history. It was so cool to see the old equipment & think back to all the stories my grandma use to tell me.

What a wonderful place to get an idea of how mountain life was when life was simple and survival a challenge. You'll love touring the old buildings and if you're lucky, see some elk, especially in the evening or early morning.

I have absolutely loved our visits to the farm museum over the last 40 years. I especially loved a firefly evening presentation. I love everything “pioneer” including history and maps and this farm museum brings everything to life.

The farm museum in conjunction with the visitor center is a worthwhile stop while visiting Cherokee. Visitors can walk freely around the farm and can also walk on a nice path through the woods. Pigs, chickens,and elk add to the carefully restored farm buildings.
