Horne Creek Farm

Farm Life – Agriculture

Once the Hauser family farm, Horne Creek enables visitors to experience farm life in North Carolina's northwestern Piedmont circa 1900. The site features the family's original farm house, a tobacco curing barn, a corn crib, adjacent fields under cultivation, and even a heritage apple orchard. Through programs ranging from old fashioned ice cream socials to an annual corn shucking frolic, Horne Creek Living Historical Farm provides a unique opportunity to learn about our rural past.

Upcoming Events

  • August 18:
    Then and Now

    Saturday, 11 am to 4 pm
    In 1900, a farmer depended on draft horses, mules, or oxen to plow his fields and garden with. Today, they have been replaced by tractors. That's just one example of many that we will explore in our "Then and Now" program. Learn about what people used on the farm (inside the farmhouse and outside on the farm) at the turn-of-the-twentieth century and what it has been replaced by in today's fast-paced world. This special event is free, and open to the public. Call 336-325-2298 for further information
