Mission Statement

Steppingstone Farm Museum preserves and interprets the rural heritage of Harford County. (E:) info@steppingstonemuseum.org (P:) 410-939-2299

Description

Steppingstone Museum is a private, not-for-profit museum which primarily preserves and demonstrates the rural arts and crafts of the 1880-1920 period in Harford County. The Steppingstone collection is comprised of domestic arts, skilled trades, and husbandry. The artifacts in each category were used by skilled specialists whose talents are scarce in our present urban and industrial society. The museum was established for the education of the younger generation and continues to strive to achieve this goal. The Steppingstone Museum Association, Inc, has an eighteen member Board of Directors, a full time Executive Director, two part-time staff, and extensive volunteer network which administers and organizes all museum functions and programs. By special agreement, the museum is jointly sponsored on a non-funding basis with the State of Maryland Park Service.
