We have been going to Wellington every year for pumpkins since our daughter was 1. She's now 14 and it's still her favorite place to pick out the perfect one for carving. We love Wellington and its volunteers.

They have living history. They have special events, wagon rides, living exhibits for life in the old days and animals. They have a pavillion. Plus you can pick up fresh veggies & pumpkins.

This is a great look at the way people in the 1930's farmed. The tour guide was very knowledgeable. Wear good walking shoes for the tour of the buildings. Also bring a camera

Went and took my family and 2 year old daughter. It was very interesting. My daughter was bored but what do you expect for a educational experience. I loved it however and thought it was a great value and a good thing. I will return for sure. Being a loca,l it makes me sad they aren't more busy.

This was something interesting to see. This is a working depression era farm. The grounds are beautiful and you can take a walking tour or ride in a little trolley pulled behind a tractor and the farm owners will give you the history of the farm.
