Women's Heritage Trail
— Women in Farm Live —Howell Living History Farm depicts family farm life during the first years of the 20th Century, when both crops and livestock, were raised from livelihood. The farmhouse on the property, while dating back to the early 1800's, is used to illustrate the domestic life of women during the period of interpretation. As the men went to work in the fields, the women of the house had the responsibility to be caretakers of home and family. Women brought beauty and creativity to the farm and to their daily chores of cleaning, cooking, child rearing and assisting in the fields. They added flowers to their vegetable gardens. They embroidered unseen undergarments and added needlework to utilitarian items. They took great pride in their cooking and baking. While the domestic realm of farmwomen was separate and distinct from the agricultural sphere of men, they are also interdependent. Each needed the other to complete the annual cycle of rural life. Howell Living Farm History Farm teaches the public about farming practices and farm life through educational programs, demonstrations, hands-on activities, historic buildings and authentic farm machinery, animals, and crops from the early 20th century.
