Learn the 200 year history of the Historic Horner Farm, presented by fifth generation owner, John Horner. In 1802, Alexander Horner purchased 440 acres near the Mason Dixon Road, Cumberland Township. Eventually Alexander built a 2-story brick Federal Style home, along with a uniquely sized barn and out buildings. John, born in the mid 1920's, shares his memories of growing up on the farm, no running water, minimum electricity, fireplaces for heat, outhouse and chores. As the automobile was introduced and improved transportation, John's dad purchased a family car, then eventually a tractor to work the land. This is a unique opportunity to listen to a verbal history of the timeline some may remember but from a different perspective. Find out what was so unique about the Horner bank barn.
