Gibbs Farm Opening Day

May 27, 2023 @ 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Join us for Gibbs Farm Opening Day 2023

May 27, 10 am-4 pm

Meet our furry and feathered farm animals; hear about RCHS’s book Grasshoppers in My Bed, featuring eleven-year-old Lillie Belle Gibbs and her 1877 imagined diary, and make a related journal craft*; enjoy folksy tunes from Light of the Moon band; and stroll across the prairie, tasting homemade ice cream and watching butterflies. Pat Bauer and Dave Geister will also be on site to share their new publication, Making Minnesota, and lead some hands on activities. As always, we’ll host tours of Gibbs Historic Farmhouse, and guests may learn about the Dakota of Cloud Man’s village by visiting our tipi and replica summer bark lodge. Guided tours are offered on the hour.

Credit & debit card purchases preferred. Gibbs Farm is located at 2097 Larpenteur Ave W, Falcon Heights, MN 55113.  Parking is free in our lot off Cleveland Avenue. Enter Gibbs Farm through the small white building just south of the parking lot.

Admission is $10 for adults, $7 for seniors, $5 for children 4-16, free for children 3 and under. RCHS Members visit Gibbs Farm for free!
