TOURS – Experience life on a traditional 1800s homestead. Guides dressed in period clothing portray family members who lived at this site from the late 1760s until 1913. Relive the story of the Zepper family as our guides, using first-person interpretation, share the activities typical of nineteenth century farm life.
Allow approximately three hours to complete a full tour of our farm.
● The buildings at Quiet Valley include the 1850s bank barn where visitors learn about crops that are raised on the farm and see a variety of livestock.
● In the Granddaddy Cabin observe the family making fabric for their clothing using wool and flax. Watch as they spin wool and weave on the loom.
● In the original farm house learn about everyday tasks such as hearth cooking, candle-making and food preservation.
During your visit to the farm you may see our one room school, enjoy a special program and pet some baby animals. There is a gift shop and picnic pavilion on site. Cold drinks and snack items are available during the summer tour hours.
