There's a place where time has stopped and the fun is only beginning: The Ag Hall of Fame. It's a collection of thousands of historical relics and works of art. It's antique implements, gadgets, and contraptions from the fields and farmhouses of our pasts. It's a museum, our own Farm Town, and America's Agricultural Hall of Fame. So take a stroll on our one-mile nature trail or ride on our authentic narrow gauge railroad. A long time ago isn't very far away at The Ag Hall of Fame.

Main Building

The main building on the Center's site has approximately 11,500 square feet of space and was constructed in 1963-64. It houses the administrative offices and a gift shop. The Gallery of Rural Art, The National Agricultural Hall of Fame, The Hall of Rural Living, The National Farm Broadcasters Hall of Fame, and The Rural Electric Conference Theater are also located here. Welcoming visitors to the Center is The National Farmer's Memorial, the only national memorial dedicated to America's food producers.

Museum of Farming

The Museum of Farming, the second building in the complex, was opened in 1967. With 20,400 square feet, it houses the Center's collection of antique farm machinery and implements that have made real differences in the evolution of farming. Many of the institution's 30,000 artifacts are located in the Museum of Farming.

Farm Town U.S.A.

In 1968, a complete One-Room School House was donated to the Ag Center. It marked the beginning of a re-created turn-of-the-century rural village know as Farm Town U.S.A. Included in the town are replicas of a Blacksmith Shop, a General Store, and a Poultry Hatchery. A 100-year old Railroad Depot, a Union Pacific Caboose, and an operational narrow-gauge Railroad Train round out Farm Town. In 1996, a two-story replica Farm House, the first of a five building farmstead, was dedicated, followed by a Farm Shed, Chicken Coop, and an eight-sided Wooden Silo. Planned future additions include a Barn, Seed Company, and Church. Adjacent to Farm Town is a 75-seat outdoor Pavilion and a One-Mile Nature Trail. The Smith Event Barn, a multi-purpose facility, was added in 2003.
