Interior of the 1890s farmhouse

On the north side of the museum is the 1890s farm, which depicts life only thirty years later. Because of advancements in technology and transportation, the farm appears more highly developed. The 1890s farmhouse was originally located less than a mile away. Visitors will notice that the construction styles are significantly different from the 1860s farm.

The other buildings on the 1890s farm are reconstructions, representing typical buildings that an 1890s family farm would need, such as a barn, tool shed, and a privy.
