The Unique Village In Washington Where Time Stands Still
There’s no doubt about it, Washington is drastically different than it was 100 years ago (and 50 years ago, and even 20 years ago). But there are still a few spots where history is preserved and time stands still; the Pioneer Farm Museum and Ohop Indian Village is one of them.
Located in Eatonville, the Pioneer Farm Museum and Ohop Indian Village pays homage to homesteading in Washington.
It's designed to take you right back to the 1880s.
The village is open seasonally, with dates and hours varying between March and September.
The staff provides hands-on guided tours (in costume, even) to help educate people on what life was like back then.
Students love to visit, but the tours are fun for people of all ages.
There are plenty of farm animals to see...
... and they're adorable.
This is not your average museum.
It's truly an interactive village with plenty of activities to keep you occupied.
In the summer and fall, you can enjoy the Ohop Indian Village tour.
You can try target shooting with a bow and arrow, make a slate arrowhead, braid leather, and so much more.
They keep things as authentic as possible here, and it show.
If you're looking for a one-of-a-kind family adventure, you'll find it here.
Common tour activities include barn chores, grinding grains, churning cream, scrubbing laundry, working in a blacksmith shop, and even dressing like pioneers.
