The Timberlane Farm Museum is home to live animals, farm crops, and period correct machinery, which are used to demonstrate the progression of farming techniques used in 1860-1940. The museum has restored and furnished two farmhouses, farms, and accompanying buildings to period correct condition. The home constructed by Milo Yates Osborn in 1882 demonstrates a typical Big Thompson Valley household in the late 1800s, without the modern conveniences of electricity and running water. The home constructed by Kenneth Osborn exhibits the improved living standards that were found in the valley in early 1900s households. Both homes demonstrate the typical family activities that existed during the respective time periods exhibited.
