The small creamery, for example, is home to milk pans, a churn, and butter worker along with tongs for moving the ice needed to keep milk cool. The granary houses a grain cradle, flail, corn sheller, and fanning mill. The toolshed is well stocked with implements — axes and numerous saws along with the grindstone that kept them sharp, drills, augers, planes, and measuring devices.
