Explore authentic 19th century buildings arranged in a village setting.
Wheel Chair Accessible
Nestled quietly on 80 acres out of the 1,000 acres that makes up Hodge Park, the museum has twenty-one structures with seventeen authentic 19th century buildings dating from 1807-1885. Our historic log cabins and homes were relocated from surrounding counties.
The grounds are open daily, dawn until dusk, and free of charge unless during a special event for admission or donation. The buildings are open during special events. Enjoy self guided tours by using our Walking Tour Guide Brochure which has building details and dates. Brochures are located at the front entrance information box, kiosk and the mercantile front porch. Picnic under the large shade trees or venture out on the walking trailsthroughout Hodge Park. Catch a glimpse of the bison and visit the chickens (Spring, Summer, and Fall months only) in the coop behind the Stollings House.
Visit during our special events! The buildings are open and re-enactors bring the village to life with skits, skirmishes, and demonstrations. Proceeds from these events go to the museum to provide educational programs, building restoration, museum operations, and grounds beautification.
School Programs, Weddings, Victorian Teas, Museum Rentals, and Tours are available by appointment only. Call 816-792-2655
