Timberlane Farm Museum

Timberlane Farm Museum

Timberlane Farm is a working farm museum intending to preserve the 1860 to 1940 life style and farming techniques.

In 1860, Judge W.B. Osborn visited the Big Thompson Valley where he acquired a 160 acre homestead which he soon began operating as a farm. (In addition to farming, he served the new county of Larimer in various capacities, including stints as an appointed County Commissioner, Treasurer, Assessor, and Judge.)

The restored homes and farm buildings provide a perfect setting for demonstrations hosted by the museum. Farming, barnyard, blacksmithing and gardening activities are scheduled for public observation and participation.
