Description: The Frontier Culture Museum tells the story of the thousands of people who migrated to colonial America. To tell the story of these early immigrants and the life they created here during the 1600s and 1700s, the museum has moved or reproduced examples of traditional rural buildings from England, Germany, Ireland, West Africa, and America. These exhibits engage visitors with living history demonstrations, showing rural life and culture in their homelands and the life these colonists created in the new colonial back country. Discover how life in the United States is shaped by its frontier past, and how that life has changed over more than a century. Join us for a day packed with hands-on living history, colonial artisans, animals, and special schoolhouse and watershed programs.
