Oliver H. Kelley Farm

Step onto a working 1860s farm, home to Oliver H. Kelley, founder of the first successful national farming organization, the Order of Patrons of Husbandry, better known as the Grange. Activities follow the farming cycle and change with the season, making each visit unique. Visitors can meet the animals in the barn, help work in the fields and gardens, and see what’s cooking in the farmhouse.

The Oliver H. Kelley Farm is a National Historic Landmark.

  • Major Expansion
  • Farm Animals

See updates on our progress to debut an expanded Oliver H. Kelley Farm in May 2016. The farm will remain open for school groups and family visitors throughout construction.
