Chalk Hill Farm Museum

Early American Farm Implements Museum is one-of-a-kind. Jim and Jeannette Silbaugh have a passion... collecting and displaying antique implements of a day gone by. Located on the grounds of their Chalk Hill Motel sits a bewildering array of machines and gadgets from the past. You could spend hours going from exhibit to exhibit trying to figure out what function each had. It's amazing to realize just how far we've advanced.

The Silbaughs have more than 1,000 items of antique machinery, tools, furniture, farm and household devices, ranging in size from a 12-ton 1905 steam engine tractor to a buttonhook for ladies' high-top shoes. A few of the other items include historic saddles, reapers, maple syrup tank and buckets, buggies, two- man cross-cut saws, stoves, blacksmith tools, a coal mine car, a functioning 1941 LaFrance fire truck. The outdoor display is free, but donations are accepted.

This is a fun stop for anyone who loves gadgets (and rabbits). Depending on your interest level you could spend anywhere from 10 minutes to 10 hours.
