The Homeplace 1850s Working Farm and Living History Museum is an interactive museum of a mid-19th-century two-generation farm. It is a working farm, which means the employees and volunteers work the farm much the way it was worked back in time.

The farm includes restored buildings, livestock, fields, and crops representative of the 1850s. This was a prosperous area back then due to its proximity to the Tennessee and Cumberland Rivers. The rivers allowed the farmers to send their crops and livestock to market. Their main cash crops were corn and tobacco, which are still produced on the farm today.

There is a covered picnic area on the far side of the parking lot with trash cans and access to a nearby creek. Modern bathrooms are available in the main building. 

Open March-November entry fees for entry: $5 ages 13 and up; $3 ages 5 - 12; 4 and under free.
