Wellington Farm USA is a living history complex that offers a unique look at life in a mid-western farming community during the 1930’s. In addition to costumed interpreters throughout the park demonstrating a life style typical of the Great Depression, we offer an excellent location for special events such as weddings, reunions, picnics and organizational meetings.
IN TIME WITH US
Experience mid-western farming life as it was during the Great Depression
Experience life in the 1930’s
The Great Depression was the worst economic disaster this country has ever experienced. It changed lives. It changed ways of living. It created hardships never before experienced.
When the Great Depression began in 1929, it changed family life from a way of living to a struggle for existence.
Wellington Farm USA provides an opportunity for current generations to witness and experience life lived by your ancestors.
Many people care about the preservation of the history of our country and the preservation of the tools, machines and lifestyles that went to make up that history. As a result, many people volunteer their time and their talents to help Wellington Farm USA present a vivid and accurate presentation of a period of time significant in our country’s history. Our past visitors appreciate that dedication as is evident from comments from our guest book.
