This farm, like many, played an important part in early Iowa agriculture around the turn of the century. The Barns are listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
The museum highlights the historical, agriculture landmarks and the contributions of local manufacturers, most notably the achievements of the Louden and Turney companies, the largest local manufacturers during that time. The barns are truly a significant illustration of an industrial revolution. The museum owners have reserved and preserved much of the antique farming equipment and items of the Maasdam family; the original seat from the Turney wagon is displayed here, as well as an original "Charter Oak" Turney farm wagon, Louden stanchions, etc.
