Summers at the Farm are beautiful! It’s the perfect place to take a walk back in time, tour the log home and grounds, and enjoy a picnic under the new pavilion or at one of our many picnic tables nestled about. We are open to the public on the first and third Saturdays of each month. One of our Docents are there from 10-2 to share  our family’s history and to help you travel back in time to learn what life was like for a family of Walton County cotton farmers in the 19th Century.

There is lots of activity this time of year– We have several private tours and weddings already scheduled! If you are hosting an upcoming event, the Helen Harris Arnold Pavilion Facility and Homestead grounds are available to rent for private events. Our calendar fills up fast, so don’t hesitate to contact us for availability.

The Fall Field Trip Season is right around the corner! We begin welcoming Georgia students back to “A DAY in the 19th Century” in early September. The students enjoying touring the log home, learning about “Outdoor Life”, taking a hayride, discovering a bit about the Creek Indians, walking through the woods to the Spring House, spending time with our Civil War Expert, and watching  Sheep Herding done by beautiful, award winning Border Collies all during a morning of curriculum based learning!

Speaking of Fall, don’t forget to check out “Events” page to learn more about our Pavilion Dedication Ceremony on 10/8 and Georgia Colonial Day on 10/15.

Come step back in time with us!
