Seminole Valley Farm Museum is a 1900 farm site listed on the National Register of Historic Places. We are a non-profit organization ran completely by volunteers. Normal open hours are Sunday, 1 to 4, May through September (except Holidays). The Museum is a restored farm site to show what early farm life was like in Iowa.

Due to the June flood of 2008, the museum is currently closed to the public for repairs. However, we will continue to host our 3 annual outdoor events while we rebuild. Please visit us at these events and help support the museum in its efforts to re-open soon. For information on any of our events, please click on "Upcoming Events" and choose the event you are interested in.

2014 Season

It's time for the new season (2014) to start. A lot is going on this year and much of it will be behind the scenes. At this time we are getting ready for our Steam and Antique Engine Show coming up on May 17th and 18th. It looks to be another great show this year. We are looking to add more vendors for our flea market that weekend. It is $15.00 for unlimited space. If you would like to set up, or know someone who would like to set up, contact us by phone or email. And we naturally start on Reflections of the Civil War as soon as the new year starts. One big change we are working on this year is adding a World War II Reenactment/Reunion in August. As it stands now it will be a great time and we are aiming to have it free to the public. Behind the scenes we are working on getting the Farm House electrical done, the roof fixed, and starting to rebuild the inside. There is also a new outhouse where the old one stood thanks to an Eagle Scout project. We will be adding a page soon to show some of the Eagle Scout projects that have been done for us and to give them credit for the hard work. We also hope to add some video on this site to better show everyone what all we do at the Museum. So for now, everyone have a great spring even though it has been rather up and down so far. It should straighten out soon so everyone can get outside and enjoy it. We look forward to seeing everyone at our events this year.

Rendezvous
September is coming to an end and fall is here. And so is the Seminole Valley Rendezvous. Our Civil War event went great and as always, we can't thank everyone enough. The weekend was great and the weather was perfect. As always the battle was fantastic. And from there time marched on and the summer is gone. And now Rendezvous is almost here. This year will add some new attractions to our event. We have a whiskey peddler that will be with us this year along with all the other trappers and traders. Also, Russ, from Tidbits paper, will have kids games going on up by the food vendor. Everyone will be able to win a prize. There is also a great looking add in the Tidbits paper so pick one up and check it out. And as with all or our events, any active military personel will get in for free so bring you active ID. This year looks to be a great Rendezvous so come out and visit us and see what all is going on.
