Ramsey County Historical Society offers unique, hands-on programs at the Gibbs Farm historic site. Costumed interpreters provide a glimpse into nineteenth century pioneer and Dakota daily life. Our local history comes alive through stories, crafts, gardening, animal husbandry, and more. You will see and experience original and replica buildings, including a log-and-sod home, the original Gibbs farmhouse and barn, tipi, Dakota summer bark lodge, and one-room schoolhouse.

We have virtual field trip options available! Check out our Field Trip Information Page for more details or email sammy@rchs.com.
