"The Wood family has farmed here for many years," said Kathy Darrow, vice president of the Cleveland Historical Society. "Now, they are offering this tour to share a little history about our local farming heritagewith the community."
Neil Wood has assembled a display featuring many farm tools and items in the museum building. They include egg washers, corn planters, hay forks, walk-behind plows, John Deere and Ford chainsaws, and other items dating back a century. He will be on hand to answer questions and explain the items and their uses. Dot Wood will also have a display featuring an old cook stove and vast collection of granite ware. Among the displays will be a variety of advertising signs, including a large curtain that hung in the Grange Hall in Bernhards Bay. It advertised many of the old businesses in the area. Visitors will also see a working 100-year-old shingle mill as well as many vintage tractors on the property in this picturesque rural setting.
