Huddleston Farmhouse [IN]

Owned and restored by Historic Landmarks Foundation of Indiana, the 1841 Huddleston Farmhouse is open to the public as a museum where visitors learn about the daily lives of John and Susannah Huddleston and their 11 children, as well as the travelers who crowded the porches and yard and rented the farmhouse's two "travelers' kitchens" for cooking and sleeping. Travelers' diaries, archaeological digs, county records, and recollections of the Huddlestons' descendants are part of the guided tour that paints a rich picture of real lives in a young state.

The house offers exhibits, tours, and educational and recreational events.
