Horne Creek Farm State Historic Site

   

About Us
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 North Carolina family farm. Visitors may visit an apple orchard featuring vintage southern apple varieties no longer grown or watch as staff experiment with traditional log construction techniques. You can try your hand at cutting grass with a scythe or listen to an elderly woman explain how to make lye soap. Through educational programs ranging from lessons on how to cook on a wood stove to 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.
