Woosley Farm

About US
Wayne and Riely Woosley have taught public school in Forsyth and Stokes Counties for 25 years. Between them they have taught all ages, from Kindergarten to seniors in high school. Throughout their teaching careers, class fieldtrips to the farm have been favorite experiences of their students.

With Riely's retirement in 2003, this exciting opportunity is offered to all area students. A unique combination of 18th century living history tours combined with a representation of the rapidly vanishing small farm in the Forsyth County countryside becomes a memorable experience for students of all ages.

The Woosley farm began in the latter 1800s when Uria Woosley moved from the Arcadia area of Davidson County and purchased 300 acres along the Yadkin River and Bashavia Creek in western Forsyth County. John, one of Uria's three sons, inherited the northern third of the original tract. He and his father, built the house which stands today. Each generation made changes and improvements to the structure. Addiitions include electricity, water, plumbing, weather siding, bathrooms, closets, and central heating; none of which were in the original house.
