Fort Caspar Museum is hosting a traveling exhibit through Wednesday that examines life on a working farm, “Farm Life: A Century of Change for Farm Families and Their Neighbors.”
The twentieth century brought profound changes for farm families. In 1900, 42 percent of Americans worked in agriculture, but by 2000, fewer than 2 percent were involved in farm production. Still, through generations of dramatic economic and social change, some families have maintained their connections to farming.
The exhibit comes from NEH on the Road, a special initiative of the National Endowment for the Humanities.
