Meadow Farm Museum

Meadow Farm Museum

One of the last remaining 19th century farms in Henrico County , this 1860 farm is now a living history museum focusing on middle class rural life in 1860.

Meadow Farm Museum presents programs and exhibits on the culture of the rural south during the mid-19th century. Interpreters provide insight into the lives of Dr. John Mosby Sheppard, the owner of Meadow Farm, and his family. On selected weekends, costumed interpreters demonstrate seasonal activities in the farmhouse, barns, doctor’s office, blacksmith forge, fields and pastures. The Museum also offers a full schedule of workshops, special events, living history programs, exhibits and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. The Orientation Center features rotating exhibits and a gift shop.

We hope you enjoy our work.
