Bringing history to life
Matthews Living History Farm Museum is a 21 acre working farm, circa 1900. We sponsor three seasonal events each year: Spring, Summer and Fall. The activities demonstrated at the farm during each event represent what was common practice in that season here in Grayson County around 1900. The Spring finds us setting the garden and plowing the fields with draft horse teams, or sometimes we are fortunate enough to have oxen teams. In Summer, the garden is in full maturity as are the hay fields. We make hay, once again utilizing draft teams, and sample goodies from the garden.
