The farm was established in 1849 and lived on and farmed for almost 100 years. The site has the original farmhouse, two barns and a one-room school, besides costumed interpreters and live farm animals. The horticultural portion of the museum consists of two gardens. The homesteader/pioneer garden is planted with heritage and heirloom seeds in keeping with the 1850s. A heritage orchard has also been planted. The second garden is planted with crops grown by the Dakota Indians during the same time period, native corn, beans and squash. Areas of tall grass prairie and oak savannah can also be seen along with the excavated remains of the original sod house built on the site.
