Overview

The Cockayne Farmstead, built in the 1850's, became a world renowned farm producing some of the world's best Merino wool. Today, the house remains virtually unchanged from the turn of the century and is open to the public to tour the house and its original collections of over 3,000 objects. The grounds, which can also be explored, include an ancient Native American mound, gardens, and an outdoor classroom on the native wonders of West Virginia.

This is an old Farmstead that has been renovated. There is a lot of magazines, clothing, dishes, furniture, cards & letters for when the Cockayne Family first lived there, back in the 1800's.
