WHY DOES CECIL COUNTY NEED A FARM MUSEUM?
Agriculture was and is still the backbone of the county's economy. Glance at early maps from the late nineteenth century and you'll se it is dotted with farms throughout and gristmills located along all the major creeks. Sadly, many farms are being lost to development. In addition, many of our young people have no idea about the origins of their food outside of the grocery store. The CCFM hopes to bring the agricultural experience, through historical presentation, to our young people. Older adults will appreciate our vision to bring a glimpse of "the good old days" back for a brief visit.

A working farm museum within the county will help educate the community on the importance of agriculture and its preservation. The museum will also serve as a focal point to display important local historical artifacts important to this area. The museum will also help to attract tourists to the area giving them another reason to extend their stay within the county.
