Horne Creek Farm

Farm Life – Agriculture

Once the Hauser family farm, Horne Creek enables visitors to experience farm life in North Carolina's northwestern Piedmont circa 1900. The site features the family's original farm house, a tobacco curing barn, a corn crib, adjacent fields under cultivation, and even a heritage apple orchard. Through programs ranging from old fashioned ice cream socials to an annual corn shucking frolic, Horne Creek Living Historical Farm provides a unique opportunity to learn about our rural past.

Upcoming Events

  • August 4:
    Crayon Art Workshop

    Saturday, 11 am to 2 pm
    In the early 1900s, cousins Edwin Binney and Harold Smith developed a nontoxic wax crayon. Binney's wife, Alice, attached the French word for chalk, "craie", with "ola," from oily, to form the Crayola brand name. Their first box of crayons was sold for a nickel in 1903. Crayola has added a lot of different products since that time, but it's amazing what beautiful artwork you can make with a simple little box of crayons, some fabric, and a lot of imagination. Workshop is limited to 10 people. Children under 10 years old must be accompanied by an adult to attend. Call 336-325-2298 by August 1 to enroll. Fee: $30.00 plus sales tax.
