I went to spend a few days with my daughter Joann and my grandchildren Elianna Grace and Reid Douglass (I love their names!). My son-in-law went to El Paso for a bowling tournament so I went to help with the kiddies.
We decided to take a trip to Slate Run Park & Historical Farm.
A little about the farm – Time has been turned back to the 1880s at Slate Run Living Historical Farm. Experience first-hand what life was like on an Ohio farm. As you stroll through the gardens, barns and farmhouse, you will see the farm costumed staff and volunteers going about their daily chores. Pigs, geese, turkeys, Percheron horses and other heirloom animals can be seen.
The gothic revival farmhouse was built in 1856 and restored by Metro Parks for authenticity. Guests can tour the living room, parlor and kitchen and watch the ladies prepare the meals and tend the house. The multi-bay barn was built by Samuel Oman, the fourth owner of Slate Run Farm, and restored by Amish carpenters.
We saw roosters, chickens, cows, horses, pigs and geese.
they were screaming so loud we had to leave the barn!
Elie and Reid loved taking the corn off the cobs.
and grinding it!
We couldn’t go into the farm house due to some school tours that were going on. Elie wasn’t happy, she really wanted to go into the house even though she’s been through it before.
Hope you enjoyed our day at the farm as much as I did!
