Wickham Rural Life Center


The Wickham Rural Life Center, which opened in the summer of 2017, showcases farm life, pre-electricity coming to the area, circa 1875-1925. Artifacts on display include a kitchen set-up with an original Hoosier cabinet and a semi-modern oven, manufactured in Geneva, N.Y. The oven used both wood and coal for cooking convenience. A washing machine in which one would agitate clothes by hand and a butter churn that was hand-cranked are here. Milk bottles from local dairies line some shelves. The farm area features many hand tools of daily farming, including a dog-operated treadmill, a bean sorter and an apple slicer. Tools of all types and uses round out the displays.


The Wickham Rural Life Center is open the same hours as the Brick Tavern Museum.
