Walnut Grove Farm, listed on the National Register of Historic Places, is a historic working farm with special events that offer visitors a unique glimpse into life of 100 years ago. Visitors step back in time when reliving lost arts and learning about life in the past.

The 19th century farmstead, while in the process of restoration, is a working 21st century farm. It was originally homesteaded in 1835 by the Charles family, who established a cattle-farming empire that specialized in breeding stock.

Over the years, it has become well-known nationwide: featured in the National Smithsonian Traveling  Barn Exhibit, as the first model of the “Barn Again” Ertl Collectibles series, on the cover of Successful Farming Magazine, in The American Barn, in John Deere’s 1999 Calendar and in various articles.”
