A Living History Museum
Step back in time at the Barclay Farmstead, a historical oasis in the heart of bustling Cherry Hill, New Jersey. Built in 1816 by a Quaker farmer, Joseph Thorn, the farmhouse and surrounding 32-acre property offers visitors an opportunity to observe and participate in the agrarian lifestyle that once dominated the South Jersey landscape. Now listed on the National & New Jersey Registers of Historic Places, the Barclay Farmstead is owned and operated by Cherry Hill Township.
In addition to tours of the farmhouse, spend some time wandering our interpretive nature trails and admiring our beautiful Plant-A-Patch garden plots. Check our calendar for a detailed listing of our many fun and educational events and programs and learn about our many volunteer activities and other ways to make a difference at the Farmstead with our support organization, the Friends of Barclay Farmstead.
