Farmsteads/Homes

Upon your visit, you are able to explore six various homes ranging from 1870-early 1900 styles and purposes. The Museum’s traditional farmstead represents the 1870s, a period when subsistence farming (most needs were provided from the farm) was still a way of life. Ranging, raising livestock by letting them live and feed on the wiregrass in the woods, was a common practice. As time progressed, homesteads began to incorporate more tools and scientific methods of farming and raising livestock, which can be seen at the Museum’s progressive farmstead. Other homes located on site are the miller’s house, turpentine worker’s cabin, and Tifton’s ‘town father’s’ home, the Tift House.
