On 28 lovely, scenic acres of magnificent trees and historical relics, the historic Patrick Ranch Museum is located.
The Patrick Ranch Museum displays the presentation of its collection, rotating exhibits, and interpretive displays, the Patrick Ranch Museum strives to enhance people’s understanding and appreciation of our community’s rich agricultural history.
Patrick Ranch Museum has a variety of events throughout the year. The history of agriculture is brought to life and contemporary concerns are addressed through special events, children’s activities, and speakers.
The 1877 Glenwood Farmhouse, Visitor Center, and Gift Shop are all housed in the Museum, as well as several barns and a valuable collection of objects. Hester Patrick’s furniture, antiques, and artifacts are used throughout the Glenwood Farmhouse interior. As we bring more of Hester Patrick’s collection to the public, as well as receive new exhibits and artifacts, the Museum continues to change.
