Life was different at the turn of the last century, and the Agricultural and Rural Life Museum in King City's San Lorenzo Park is a walk back in time.
See first-hand how students learned in a one-room schoolhouse, complete with students' desks and slates for writing, and teacher's tools for discipline. Visit a historic train depot and imagine what it was like to wait for a train 100 years ago. The blacksmith is still at work, and the farmhouse gives visitors a view into how people lived one hundred years ago. Explore antique mining and farming equipment, including giant tractors, as well as a tack shop, country store and antique printing press.
Explore the Exhibit Barn Tuesday through Friday, 10am to 4pm. Visit the Spreckels House, Schoolhouse, Train Depot and Olson Blacksmith Shop on Fridays from noon to 4pm and Saturdays and Sundays from 11am to 4pm. There is no fee to visit the museum. For more information, see the Agricultural and Rural Life Museum website.
