Chippokes Farm and Forestry Museum

The museum's mission is to show agriculture's past, present and future. Four buildings house early American farm and forestry tools and equipment. There are antique tractors and a working 1930s saw mill. The staff maintains livestock and manages more then 500 acres of still-productive farmland. The museum's Steam and Gas Engine Farm Festival, always held the weekend after Memorial Day, features tractor pulls, running model trains, flying model planes, horse teams plowing, a petting zoo, crafts, demonstrations and much more. The museum provides SOL-compliant educational programs on-site and through outreach for public schools, home-schoolers, scouts, 4-H and other organizations.
