History This site is under development as a place to experience everyday farm life in North Carolina's northwestern Piedmont ca. 1900. Visitors can take part in daily activities and special events of bygone farm life, as well as see, smell, touch, and hear things once common in rural North Carolina. At Horne Creek Living Historical Farm, a multi-year project is underway to reconstruct the physical environment and seasonal work cycle of an early 20th-century family farm in the North Carolina piedmont. Visitors may encounter farm animals of all but vanished breeds once kept on the Hauser Farm or savor old-fashioned apple varieties grown in Horne Creek's heritage apple orchard. You can try your hand at cutting grass with a scythe or listen to a talk on how to cook on a wood stove. Through educational programs ranging from white oak basket making workshops to an annual corn shucking frolic, Horne Creek Living Historical Farm provides a unique opportunity to learn about our rural past.
