Babbie Rural & Farm Learning Museum
The Babbie Rural & Farm Learning Museum is located in Peru, New York, and its mission is to educate the public about rural life in the Champlain Valley and the Adirondack Mountains during the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Founded by Leeward Babbie in 2010, the museum acquires, restores, displays farming tools of the period and demonstrates how they were used. Some items include horse drawn implements, gas engines and early tractors.
