Farming in Early Minnesota
A reprinted edition of the 1961 book by the former curator of the Gibbs Farm Museum.
The author's hand-lettered text and delightful illustrations offer a fascinating glimpse of the tools and tasks of Minnesota farming from 1850 to 1935.
The Gibbs Farm Museum is a National Historic Site. It was the home of Heman and Jane DeBow Gibbs and their descendants for almost 100 years - from 1849, when Gibbs filed his claim for 160 acres in the present-day St. Paul suburb of Falcon Heights, to 1943 when the Gibbs farm was sold to the University of Minnesota. The Ramsey County Historical Society acquired the farmstead in 1949. Ages 8 and up, Grades 3-6
