Favorite thing: Hallockville Museum Farm & Folklife Center I visited and took the tour with an older lady who has been giving tours for many years. She walked me through the barn, house, and all around the farm yards. Very proud of the work their volunteers had done in preserving the site...
The farm is on the National Register and the barn is a delight. Enjoyed that more than the house...although it's fun if you are into the 1800's. (I have a personal preference for 1700's)
They have maintained all of the farm implements just as they were left by the original users. Lots of interesting tools and modes of transport.
Friendly faces all around.
