Since the Tobacco Farm Life Museum is transitioning to become part of the state’s museum system, its Board of Directors will now become a Friends of the Museum group. This group will still need to raise money for the activities the TFLM wants to continue such as Ag Camp, the 301 Yard Sale, the touring public and school groups, in addition to the Commissioner’s Breakfast. So, please continue supporting the Tobacco Farm Life Museum with your donations now and in the future. Donations to the TFLM need to be made to the “ Friends of the Tobacco Farm Life Museum.”
Thank you!

Step back in time as you enjoy our museum and grounds. Stop and sit a spell on our front porch before touring the 6,000 sq ft gallery. The gallery features permanent and rotating exhibits on farm life including southern medicine, domestic skills, rural social life, textiles, early transportation and much more. The historic buildings on site include the original Iredell Brown Homestead with detached kitchen, a tobacco barn, a smokehouse, and a one-room schoolhouse from a nearby community, as well as reconstructions of a packhouse and working blacksmith shop.

Valuing our Heritage

Through Educational and Community Programs

Dedicated to our mission to preserve and present the history and heritage of the rural farming community through collection care, research and public tours

Since 1983

The Museum was founded by passionate volunteers who saw technology change the farming process and the agricultural communities in which they grew up.  Working with local farmers they offered on-farm tours, starting one of North Carolina's earliest Agritourism organizations.  Continuing to partner with our local farmers and other members of the agribusiness community allows us a wonderful opportunity to share information about the State's largest industry with visitors from around the world.  An industry that impacts everyone daily.
