The mission of the St. Clair County Farm Museum is to acquire, preserve, demonstrate and exhibit artifacts which will provide the public with an understanding and appreciation for the agricultural heritage of St. Clair County. While farming, lumbering and rural domestic life will be addressed for all periods of the county’s development, the primary focus will be for the periods of 1880 to 1945.And of course what fun is it to acquire without displaying, So once a year the last weekend in August we hold the annual St. Clair County Farm Museum’s “FALL HARVEST DAYS”. which consist of 3 days of demonstrations of “How it used to be”. You’ll be able to see Steam powered “Threshing” of wheat going on. Watch as huge logs get made into boards on an old style “Port Huron Sawmill“. See and hear the old “Steam Traction Engines” run while you take your time walking past rows of restored tractors. Or stroll through the “Barns” and see the displays of antiques, and memorabilia of yesteryear. And of course horsepower of machines made America great. See working displays of “Hit and Miss Engines”. Then watch the big boys play with the real tractors in a “Pull Contest“. It’s a day full of adventure for the whole family.
In order to achieve this mission, the Museum is continually working to provide educational static, functional, and interactive displays. In addition, by providing historical information and documentation through the use of this website, others not able to visit the Museum because of geographic location or disability may also benefit.
