Farm Museum

Mid-19th century pioneers settled on the short-grass prairie, in northeastern Colorado, and tried their hand at farming.  A Pawnee chief once said, “Grass no good upside down."  During the Great Depression and Dust Bowl of the 1930s, farmers experienced the wisdom of that comment in this arid, windy region.  Those who stayed learned many lessons, and adjusted their ways and their tools.  Today, historic farming equipment is on display at the Lee and Dorothy Rhodes Farm Implement Museum, within Crow Valley Recreation Area.  This collection of equipment, donated by the descendants of homesteaders, can help one imagine what life was like in pioneer days.
