Research & Collections
The Shields and Ethridge families seldom threw things away; what could not be used was set aside… just in case.
The Shields-Ethridge Heritage Farm hosts many special events and educational opportunities, including a number of curriculum-based tours and hands-on educational programs.
Closed from October to April.
