​The Farm History Center is the non-historic building on the site and serves as our Visitors Center. When you are visiting Oak View, be sure to stop in and get an informational brochure and introduction to the site from our staff.

The Farm History Center features exhibits that tell the story of agricultural history in North Carolina, including an authentic sharecroppers cabin. It is also the site of the Farmer's Corner, an interactive area where kids can learn about farming through play, and also where you can check out our Adventure Backpacks, self-guided activity kits geared toward children that teach about different topics of Oak View's history through hands-on activities and games.
