Fischer Farm is one of the oldest remaining homesteads in the county and was established around 1838. Through the years, the Fischers built barns and a large farm house in 1920. Visitors can come and enjoy the many artifacts and unchanged landscape that settlers looked upon when they arrived in the area. Programs and events at the farm promote the awareness of the historical and ecological significance of the site.
