Meadow Farm Museum Reviews
Spend an hour checking out things and walking around particularly the hiking paths. Great exercise. Very relaxing environment. Beautiful park. more »
You have living history. Then you have Meadow Farm. You think you are on a tour, but you actually go back in time and live out what the people lived back in the day. more »
I have been a fan of this place for many years. The history that this place shows its almost as if you can envision the past. Great place for history demos and reenactments . I've taken hundreds of children there to run and play and feed ducks and talk about the family that lived here. Nice playgrounds too! Love love love meadow farm forever...ALWAYS, MS.

An amazing farm and 200+ year old house which you can view all for free! The house tour was very enjoyable. Every 30 minutes on most afternoons you can enter the house for guided tour. The tour guide was great and very knowledge, and the house is a fantastic period piece filled with antiques. The farm has cows, sheep, horses, and more, and is fun to explore. Lots of great older buildings surround the farm. And everything is totally free. Quite amazing!
