Frying Pan Farm Park recreates a time of great transition in rural America, from the 1920s to the 1940s, which included the advent of the tractor, the milking machine, mechanical bailers among many advances. The farm features chickens, peacocks, rabbits, sheep, pigs, cows and other livestock. Kids have plenty of opportunities to meet the farm animals, take classes, workshops or horseback riding lessons and gain knowledge of how a farm thrived in the 1920s through the 1950s. The meeting house was used for town meetings and religious services, and is a state landmark. It is included on the National Register of Historic Places. Another fun fact: While its name suggests otherwise, for over a decade the Thanksgiving turkeys granted presidential pardons were sent to Frying Pan Park in Herndon to live on in peace.
