day trip at the farm museum in carroll county maryland
Nov 26, 2013 by: vicdepaula from Westminster, Maryland
a must visit for a day trip around carroll county Maryland......not far from the city of Westminster. a great family trip. always something going on and plenty to see. the schedule includes civil war memories and items of interest. check the schedule of events, such as, wine festival and other attractions like the ag. center, within walking distance. you need not spend a fortune at any of these attractions. check the carrol county times newspaper and on-line ads. there is also a chamber of commerce---close to McDaniel college and other sites all within 10 mile radius.

This is a nice family trip, it isn't very big so it wont take all day. The cost to get in is very cheap and they have events scheduled all year long. Check it out. I have been many times.
Capture the Past

Nice place to visit, walk through and see the settings from a bygone era. Educational for kids, adults usually get a kick out of seeing how things were accomplished in the kitchen and on the farm so long ago. If the blacksmith is working at the forge- definitely worth taking time to see and watch.
September Wine Festival

This was the 30th year for the wine festival. It's a great activity to spend the day tasting wines and eating food. Bring a blanket or chairs and enjoy the music, wine, food and spend the day. Weather was great this year.
A Look into Rural Life

A friend's son will be having his wedding here. She's in Texas so my husband and I traveled to the museum to scout out the venue for her, camera in hand. Turns out that we really enjoyed our visit and were glad that her event brought us here. The grounds are beautiful. Various farm buildings held exhibits that we found both educational and interesting. Our tour of the almshouse was a first for us and we've done a lot of traveling. When we arrived, a family of 20 was having a photo shoot in different areas including a covered bridge. Later, we watched as a wedding party arrived. That ceremony was being held in a garden with a gazebo. A barn for receptions is also on the grounds. Lots of room for kids to play, farm poultry and a peacock and peahen were on display as were lambs that day. Tents, picnic tables and pavilions were visible so large groups would be easily accommodated. The September wine festival draws a very large crowd we were told. Not at all crowded when we were there. We had a really pleasant time. Good way for history/farm buffs and families to spend an afternoon.
