Wheeler Historic Farm is a very popular location for photography backdrops.
We are glad you are considering Wheeler Historic Farm to capture life's moments. Our natural landscape and historic buildings make for great photo opportunities.
Although the space to the south of the Activity Barn is a public park; the entire property including the woods, structures and farmland are on the National Historic Register. It is our responsibility to protect the site for generations to come.
Our goal is to maintain and improve facilities, protect the animals, historic landmarks and items frequently used as props. For example, the porch and railings on the 113- year-old historic home have become more fragile as time goes on. Having people sit and climb leaves a mark. And, sadly, we have had irreplaceable artifacts in our displays damaged or destroyed by photographers who did not respect the space.
Our office is open from 9:00 AM-6:00 PM, Monday-Saturday, April-October and 9:00 AM-5:00 PM, Monday-Saturday, November-March. We do have staff here 7 days a week and you may be asked to show your photo pass.
Photography Teachers - please request your dates.
Teachers who plan to hold class sessions at the farm must request dates, be pre-approved and pay a $5 fee per student.
