“Wonderful family outing!”
Review of Meadow Farm Museum

Attraction details
Reviewed 10 September 2011

I took my children, ages 2, 5, and 12, to the Meadow Farm Museum. We absolutely loved it! They could run wild on the trails and through the grass. They got to see the animals up close including sheep, chickens, a turkey, hogs (named George and Martha as they came from Mount Vernon), cows, horses, and sheep. We also saw wildlife like frogs, dragonflies and butterflies. We took a brief tour of the original farm house built in 1810 (house additions from 1820 on). Such a wealth of information!

I had every intention to hit the playground, but we spent nearly three hours just in the farm and museum protion of the property. We will definitely be going back!

Bring a picnic! There's a huge playground near the entrance, and a pond for fishing. The big attraction here is the working farm and farmhouse. There are lots of farm animals to see (cows, pigs, sheep, turkeys, horses, BUNCHES of barn kitties). The main house holds tours sporadically throughout the year, where you will learn about life as a farmer (and doctor) during the Civil War. There is also a blacksmith that is usually there working (barring bad weather and some weekdays). The farm also holds some special events throughout the year, like the Fall Harvest Festival and Civil War lantern tours with reenactors.
