Time has been turned back to the 1880s at Slate Run Living Historical Farm. Experience first-hand what life was like on an Ohio farm. As you stroll through the gardens, barns and farmhouse, you will see the farm costumed staff and volunteers going about their daily chores. Pigs, geese, turkeys, Percheron horses and other heirloom animals can be seen.

The gothic revival farmhouse was built in 1856 and restored by Metro Parks for authenticity. Guests can tour the living room, parlor and kitchen and watch the ladies prepare the meals and tend the house. The multi-bay barn was built by Samuel Oman, the fourth owner of Slate Run Farm, and restored by Amish carpenters.

  • Slate Run Farm has a historical house, a summer kitchen, and a large red barn to explore. There are people dressed like the 1800’s and the work is done as they would back then. It’s fascinating to watch and learn. There’s a separate building where the pigs live and in the Spring my family loves to go to see the piglets! In the fall they sell pumpkins that they grew there for very reasonable prices. The staff try to get visitors involved and educated. All of my children have loved visiting the farm. Truly wonderful memories.
  • Had a great time. It's free and there is lots for kids to do. Best of all, it's free. Worth the drive to get to it. And the parks around the farm area are nice!
