Buckley Homestead

The historic traditions, culture and heritage of farming life during the 19th and early 20th centuries are re-created on this living history farm, where visitors learn about our local history or reminisce about their own childhood memories. Upon arrival to the park you'll notice the Visitor Center, located next to the parking area on Hendricks Road. It includes restroom facilities, drinking fountain, information kiosk, and a small gift shop which is open weekend afternoons in September and October. Take the path from the Visitor Center past the herb garden and through the orchard to the Buckley family farm. If the buildings are closed when you visit feel free to peek in the windows. Better yet, come back when the buildings are open. Be sure to read the interpretive signs at each building.
