Mission Statement


Steppingstone Farm Museum preserves the Harford County farming culture and artifacts of the turn of the 20th century, educates the public about our agricultural heritage, demonstrates the past through rural arts and crafts, and promotes related educational and community activities.

Description


Steppingstone Farm Museum is a private, not for profit museum which preserves and demonstrates the rural arts and crafts of the 1880-1920 period in Harford County. The Steppingstone collection is comprised of domestic arts, skilled trades and husbandry. The Artifacts in each category were used by skilled specialists whose talents are scarce in our present urban and industrial society. The purpose of the collections at Steppingstone is the acquisition, preservation and study of the material culture of America's last rural generation, as well as the exhibition and demonstrated use of the artifacts. The museum was established for the education of the younger generation and continues to strive to achieve this goal through a variety of guided tours and craft workshop programs.
