Wheeler Historic Farm has a Wheeler Historic Farm Walk Cub Scout Patch. The requirements can be completed in about one hour. The patch is available at Boy Scout headquarters. Cub Scouts may earn their patch by completing the following requirements with their Den, Pack or Family:
Quarter Horses and Belgian Horses.
We have two Belgian Draft horses, Dodge and Dixie. In the early 1900’s they would have been used to pull wagons and plow fields.
Thresher, Manure Spreader and Potato Planter.
These items are in the Machinery Barn, located east of the cow pastures. Other items can be found throughout the property.
Ice Harvesting. Just like in the movie "Frozen", Ice was cut in the ponds and used for refrigeration. It was stored in the Ice House to be used year-round.
Ponds were also popular for Ice Skating.
Women and children
Weaving rugs, blankets, and fabric for clothing
Some can produce up to 10 gallons a day
We offer guided tours highlighting family farm life at the beginning of the 20th century. Tours can accommodate all group types including: schools, scouts, religious groups, families, special needs, etc. Plan on one hour for your tour.
$4 per person (Title 1 Schools: $3 per person)
Blacksmith demonstration, enjoy a wagon ride, learn about the animals and take a glimpse into old-fashioned farm living.
$4.50 per person
In addition to the Farm Tour, participants will enter the Historic Farm House main floor, a downstairs tour of the farmhouse museum.

Some schools visit the farm on their own, without a tour guide. If you would like to add a wagon ride to your visit, we recommend make a reservation as wagon rides sell out on busy Spring days.

Bring your class to experience fall at the farm!
