Part amusement park and part museum, Blackberry Farm’s Pioneer Village is an authentic 19th century farm and village featuring pioneer craft shops and demos, a discovery barn with petting zoo and pony, hay and miniature train rides. The park also features an old-fashioned carousel, as well as carriage, farm and “early streets” museums. In the Village there are five large museum collections, including the Carriage House, the Farm Museum, the Early Streets Museum and the Huntoon House. These contain an outstanding collection of late 19th century artifacts used in every facet of life. The Carriage collection houses 40 carriages, sleighs and commercial vehicles. The Farm collection has many particularly rare implements dating from the mid-1800s to 1910. The Streets Museum houses 11 late Victorian era exhibit stores including a music shop, a pharmacy, a general store, a photography shop and a toy store.


Blackberry Farm’s Pioneer Village is a living history museum situated on 54 scenic acres with a lake, ponds and a meandering stream. The grounds contain an arboretum with over 200 varieties of trees and many gardens, floral displays and historic agricultural gardens.
