Wilbur Burgin has gathered hundreds of items from a time gone by - items used in Rutherford County farms and homes from decades ago, even back to the nineteenth century. These items reflect a way of life important in Rutherford County until after World War II. Two large murals, depicting the cycle of growing cotton, and the early textile mills of the county, are outstanding features of this museum.
The Farm Museum is located at 240 Depot Street in Forest City. To arrange group tours call the museum Wednesday through Saturday at (828) 248-1248 or call Mr. Burgin at home evenings at (828) 453-0157. Admission is free to children.View Larger Map
