New Hampshire Farm Museum

The New Hampshire Farm Museum consists of two adjoining farmsteads, situated on 50 acres with a working farm, heritage-breed animals, and heirloom varieties of vegetables. The Jones Farm and Plummer Homestead date back to the 18th century. The museum offers guided tours of the farm and the historic Jones farmhouse and exhibits and displays on rural life and agriculture in New Hampshire.

The museum is also home to a vast collection of historic agricultural implements and artifacts, including Daniel Webster's plow, and Horace Greely's privy.
