Our mission is to provide an entertaining environment where visitors can learn about rural and farm life in the Champlain Valley and Adirondacks prior to the 1950's.......
The purpose and goal of the museum:
The Babbie Rural & Farm Learning Museum, located at 250 River Road, Peru NY 12972 in Clinton County is to enhance knowledge of rural agriculture life in Northern New York. It is our goal to set an atmosphere of how farm families lived and worked in the late 19th and early 20th century. It will also acquire, restore, display and demonstrate how things were operated. Learning from horse drawn implements, gas engines, early tractors and other supporting tools showing the heritage of New York's rural and farm life development. With museum visitors young and old alike some demonstrations will be inter-active. It is important to educate and entertain the public while reviewing our rural and agricultural history.
The museum is a non-profit, dedicated to preserving our historical agricultural way of life. Teaching everyone the way rural homes and farms operated in the past will be the main focus of the museum. We are a living Museum showing the evolution of rural farming in the North Country.
