Exchange Place: Gaines-Preston Farm will take you back to the 1850s with its restored structures from the 19th Century. This living history farm will give a glimpse of how farm life was through demonstrations such as how things were bought through exchanging items. Check out the basketry, spinning, candle dipping and quilting work stations. They also have period livestock in the farm. Every necessity was either grown or made during that era. This place shows how in this fast paced life where everything is available in a jiffy, it was not so in that time. Only salt was bought. It is a great place to visit during festivals like Spring Garden Fair, Fall Folk Arts Festival, Witches Wynd and Christmas in the Country.
The Exchange Place is a restored building showing eight original reconstructed buildings and four historic breeds of livestock.
