Anderson Island Historical Society-Johnson Farm
Since the 1800s, Anderson Island farmers have tilled the land of Johnson Farm. Today, under the tutelage of the Anderson Island Historical Society, the Johnson Farm serves as a living museum offering visitors a view of 19th century farm life. A Partners in Preservation grant will aid rehabilitation of the farm buildings, allowing Johnson Farm to continue to delight Anderson Island visitors for many years to come.
