Penn Farm Agricultural History Center is located on land once owned by John Wesley Penn and his descendants. They grazed cattle and horses on the native grasses for over a century.
The diverse land types of the Cedar Mountain escarpment and Mountain Creek bottomland was ideal for cultivating traditional crops and featured an orchard as well as pastures for grazing.
Penn Family Homestead
in Cedar Hill State Park
The center pays tribute to the Penn Farm and other small, middle class farmsteads that once occupied this area and affords a glimpse into the evolution of machinery that replaced the horse and mule.
Penn Farm has a very relaxing atmosphere and is perfect for family outings. It features reconstructed and historic buildings from the mid 1800s through the mid 1900s. The center is part of Cedar Hill State Park and is open seven days a week. Visitors can enjoy self-guided tours anytime or call to arrange a guided tour for school and other groups led by park docents.
