A Lost Catskill Farm


Located behind the Museum, the new 1930s Lost Catskill Farm tells the story of farmers who were forced to give up their land to build NYC’s water system. Period buildings include a farm house, outhouse, milk house and workshop powered by a working waterwheel.

All of the buildings are furnished with period furniture, equipment, tools and artifacts to evoke an earlier and simpler time, but the farm is also interactive with videos, computers and games and activities for both children and adults.
