National Agricultural Hall of Fame
The historic village at the National Agricultural Hall of Fame represents a rural American village at the turn of the 19th century. The one-room school, black smith shop and train depot are historic living history museums that allow families a look into the lives their grandparents and great-grandparents lived. The race raises money to preserve this history and the fun of exploring it at the National Agricultural Hall of Fame!
