About the Venue:
Wellington Farm USA is located just miles from downtown Grayling, MI. From their website:
Wellington Farm, USA is a 60-acre living history complex depicting life as it was lived in a Midwestern farming community during the Great Depression.   It is the creation of a local resident who, by his own admission, was born more years ago than he would like to admit on a farm in northwest Lower Michigan.  The only son of a farmer and a school teacher, he earned degrees from Central Michigan University and Michigan State University.  In 1960 he began a 31 year in education teaching music and theatre.  For 17 years he was director of Adult and Community Education.  With a background in farming and an avid interest in history he began to accumulate a vast collection of agriculture related tools and machinery.  With his wife’s encouragement he combined his passions into what has now become Wellington Farm, USA.  The farm opened in 1996 with one storage building, a sawmill and an outhouse.  Today the complex has 26 structures and offers guided tours.  Visitors are fascinated and entertained by the buildings, complete in every historical detail and the dress and storytelling of the very capable and knowledgeable guides.”
