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.

Gibbs Farm is open to the public on Fridays (12pm-3pm) and Saturdays (10am-4pm)

A combination tour of the Gibbs Farmhouse, one-room schoolhouse, Dakota Bark Lodge and Tipi will be offered every hour on the hour. Prior registration is NOT required for  Saturday public hours. Tours will have a capacity limit of 10 guests. Please sign up for your tour as soon as you arrive on site. Face masks are encouraged while indoors.  Credit & debit card purchases preferred. Please call us for more information!
