The Washington County Fair Farm Museum
Open May - October
Our Mission is to cultivate an appreciation for agriculture by educating visitors about our rural heritage.
The Farm Museum displays artifacts of rural life in Washington County, New York during the 1800s–1940s. Exhibits show the many aspects of agriculture throughout the county including dairy, poultry, potatoes, crop production, and ice harvesting. Local farmers developed many tools to make their work easier and faster. Some inventions were very successful and others never got off the local homestead. Items in the Farm Museum collection were all used or manufactured in Washington County. Additional authentic out buildings moved to the museum complex include a corncrib, summer kitchen, milkhouse and an 1853 one-room schoolhouse complete with woodshed and outhouses.
