Once a classic farm of the New Richmond area, its land now hosts a housing development, an industrial park, and the sweep of a schoolyard. You can move on from the original Farmstead setting to other historic buildings.

These combine to give a "feel" of turn-of-the-19th century life and more. The farmstead core of Victorian house and granary, both built in 1884, and barn, rebuilt in 1916, are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

In nearly one hundred years only two families have lived in the house. The original family was that of Marcus and Kathryn Bell, and from 1910, that of Ed and Catherine Tierney. In 1982, after estate settlement, development of the property into a complex of historic buildings began.

Now used for the Heritage Center blacksmith and carpenter tool collections, the barn was originally one of the outbuildings of a farm
east of New Richmond. Blacksmith and woodworking shops were some
of a pioneer village's first businesses

The Society owns and operates the Heritage Center, which is open for tours, programs and events.Several of the 10 historic buildings can be rented by organizations, individuals and businesses for meetings and small receptions.

Membership is open to everyone. Simply print the membership form and mail it with your dues. Members receive all newsletters, free tours, and program discounts.

I love this place. Beautiful grounds to walk. School and personal tours. Lovely venue for weddings and family & friends gatherings, weekly live music in the summer, Heritage Days in September is unique, informative, and fun for all ages. Most of staff is volunteer and funds through their excellent flea market make shoppers know that they got a good deal for themselves and helped support an important part of history preservation. This place is my happy place.

Love the barn thrift store and the outdoor farmer's market. I wish they had more vendors tho. The volunteer staff at the barn are such a delight especially the gentleman that works upstairs. He's been working there for years and makes this place a joy to shop at. I wish more people like him we're in this world...it would make everything better for sure 😀👍👍
