About

We have a unique opportunity for volunteers with a love of history to interview local residents about their agriculutre roots and/or their connection to our historic farm.

Wagner Farm was privately owned by the Wagner family until Rose Wagner passed away in 1997. We often have people stop by the farm and share stories of their experiences with the Wagner family, 'back in the day’. Our Oral History Project records and preserves those stories for future generations. We're looking for interviewers with some basic knowledge of farming who recognize the historic value of preserving these memories!

We'll provide you with basic background infomation, a list of discussion topics, and a digital recorder to preserve your interview. Help us save history!
