Thanks to Wilson County Farm Bureau for helping to sponsor the revitalization of this educational area.
Additions are also being made to our newest barn, the Heritage Barn. More antique tools and equipment are being displayed on the walls covered with barn wood and tin. The upstairs area truly depicts a homestead area from days gone by. Kitchen and bedroom areas are two of the highlights in the loft of the barn.
