Wheeler Historic Farm in Murray, Utah is an interesting and enjoyable place to visit. The farm is a great place to bring young children, but adults will also surely enjoy walking around the historic farm.

The Wheeler Historic Farm has had a rich history. Since the mid-1800s many individuals have lived and/or harvested on the farm. The farm opened to the public in 1976, and can now be enjoyed by everyone. It is still an active farm with animals.

Across the 75 acre site you’ll find several historic buildings, the two most prominent being the Activity Barn and the Victorian House. There are many other buildings including the Root Cellar & Summer House, the Activity Barn & Milking Parlor, and the Blacksmith Shop & General Store. There is also some historic farm machinery.

Cow and goat milking demonstrations, and wagon rides are available for children for a small fee. Tours of the Wheeler Historic Farm Victorian Home (construction of which began in 1896) are also available.

Lastly, there is the “Back 40” area on the opposite side of Little Cottonwood Creek with hiking paths that you can explore. There are two ponds within the park, and there is also plenty of open grassy space to recreate, relax or picnic.
