Useful information


This working, turn-of-the-century farm centers around the 1903 Hovander home, whose gables, gingerbread trim and interior period furnishings bespeak the Swedish background of its owners. Flanking it is a large dairy barn with a milking parlor and harness and tack rooms, and a farmyard full of hoofed animals, ducks, geese and even peacocks. Surrounding fields are cultivated in hay, and both children and adults are invited to savor the smells and sights of this historic farm.
