Penn Farm Agricultural History Center


category : Museums
The Penn Farm Agricultural History Center depicts farming right before and after World War II when there was a change in agriculture from being an enterprise of self-sufficient small farms to more of an agribusiness where farm machinery took the place of the horse and mule almost a century ago.

There are reconstructed and historic buildings from the mid 1800s through the mid 1900s. Exhibits housed in a1918 barn, a Model T garage, two granaries and other restored structures interpret the farm site and life of the middle-class farmers who worked the land from the 1920s to the 1960s.

The Penn Farm has a very relaxing atmosphere and is perfect for family walks. Self-guided and guided tours are available. Special tours can be set-up for school groups or other groups.


Hours: The Farm is open 7 days a week to self-guided tours.
Address: Cedar Hill State Park
Phone: 972-291-3900
