The Tobacco Farm Life Museum is seeking to improve artifact preservation and update current exhibits with a more comprehensive history of the farming community between 1880 and 1950. The Museum will make necessary repairs to the 35-year-old gallery building and update existing some key exhibit displays’ visual look and content. This will make the museum’s collections and stories more accessible to current and future generations who may not be familiar with agriculture’s significant impact on our past and present. Educating the public about agriculture promotes farmers and helps visitors relate to where their food and fibers come from.
