Bee Family Centennial Farm Museum
Since 1894, four generations of the Bee family tended their 160-acre farm. Part of the National Register of Historic Places since 2002, 10 acres of this preserved land now host the Bee Family Centennial Farm Museum. Through various exhibitions and activities, the museum teaches visitors about the family's efforts to cultivate their little segment of the Northern Colorado prairie.
From antique tractors and trucks to private letters and diaries, thousands of the Bee's personal effects fill their original houses, sheds, garages, and barns. In the horse barn, a wooden horse models an original harness. Meanwhile, in the milk barn, kids can milk a wooden cow. The museum's other hands-on activities include gathering eggs from nesting boxes outside the chicken house, grinding corn for animal feedings, and throwing irrigation tubes.
