Daily Activity
Hale Farm & Village is a 19th century outdoor living history museum.  With no electricity in sight and no planes overhead, it doesn't take long for our travelers to realize the shift in time.  Each day our guests engage themselves in an interactive experience with our variety of family-friendly activity.  The landscape includes 32 historic buildings, a working farm, craft & trade demonstrations, and interpreted sites with historic costumed staff. 

With so much fun activity, Hale Farm & Village is the perfect experience for the whole family to spend a day in history! 


The team of milking shorthorn oxen arrived from Maine in spring 2012. Come see them demonstrate 19th-century farm chores or enjoy their break in the North Pasture.
