Nineteenth Century Farming

At Slate Run Living History Farm, visitors will experience an 1880s working farm.

Experience first-hand what life was like on an Ohio farm at Slate Run Living History Farm. Strolling through the gardens, barns and farmhouse, visitors will see the farm costumed staff and volunteers going about the daily chores necessary for successful farming. The gothic revival farmhouse was built in 1856 and restored for authenticity by the Columbus Metro Parks. Guests can tour the living room, parlor and kitchen and watch docents prepare meals and tend to housekeeping. The multi-bay barn was built by Samuel Oman, the fourth owner of Slate Run Farm, and restored by Amish carpenters. Other outbuildings include storage sheds and animal shelters. Visitors will encounter geese, sheep, turkeys, Percheron horses and other heirloom animals.
