Name, City, Type of Resource

Some of these farms still have fields, some have been pared down to only the house, at some you can do hands on activities and at others costumed interpreters perform farm chores as they used to be done.  But all give a feel of the time when most Americans lived in small towns or rural areas instead of today's suburbs and cities.  Please tell us of other sites that give visitors the same experience.
