Step Back In Time To Iowa’s Pioneer Days At This Historic Village Museum

Much of the credit for Iowa’s success and strength rests on the shoulders of the farming families who settled here. Through their tenacity, incredible work ethic, and ingenuity, they laid the foundation for our state to become one of the most productive states agriculturally in the nation. These characteristics remain in our farmers of today as well, but the methods and equipment that farmers use have changed astronomically from when Iowa was settled. Iowans are accustomed to seeing combines and tractors pulling grain carts at harvest time nowadays, but what did farming used to look like in Iowa? Thanks to Nelson Pioneer Farm in Iowa, that question has an answer.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
