Learn about the farm and family life of tobacco farmers in the 1900s.

The Tobacco Farm Life Museum has two floors full of displays that depict both the family life and production of tobacco from beginning to end. Farming and family life are displayed in exhibits that depict typical farm families and their lifestyles. There is an early 1900 classroom portrayal, a general store concept, and 19th-century furnishings to give guests a feel of what life was like for tobacco farmers. A dental exhibit shows a chair with dental tools from the era, plus antique medical equipment. Clothing, books, and toys that families would have used in their daily lives are displayed as well.

Be sure to read the interesting, informative displays that explain tobacco production from seed to harvest. As you explore the museum, there is a great collection of farm equipment and tobacco paraphernalia. Also displayed are tobacco drying tools, vintage cigarette signage, and advertisements. Outside, there is a barn and more farm equipment, a well used for watering crops, and rows of tobacco plants growing. Anyone who visits will learn how important tobacco was in the area, including its economic contributions and the hardships of production when tobacco was king.
