Galleries include historical period rooms as well as a major changing exhibition space. We will offer short
talks in the Nicholson Family Wagon House featuring our new permanent exhibit, “Travel In and Around
Sparta. We will also have programs throughout the afternoon in “What’s Cooking at the Van Kirk Farm.

the State Road Reunion Band, food, and special tours throughout the Car Show and The Homestead for
the whole family!
