Buckley Homestead Farm Tours! A fun, educational, hands-on look around the farm!
Join one of Buckley's historic interpreters for a limited-attendance tour around the homestead. On this hour-long tour, you'll get to go inside all of the buildings, help feed the animals, and even get to choose a select gift from the shop.
This tour does involve about a mile of walking on natural surfaces, and is open to all ages! To keep people safe and allow ourselves room to spread out there is a limit of 20 people per tour and masks will be required when entering buildings.
The tour is $5 per person with daytime and evening tours. When registering you will be required to create an account and then select a $5 spot for each person in your family or group.
Click the link for online registration or if you would prefer to make your reservation by phone, you can do so by calling 219-769-7275 and our reservation specialists will help create an account for you.
