FFA Agricultural Museum

Location:

La Porte City
Chestnut Street

The FFA Agricultural Museum features exhibits related to rural life of a bygone era. The Museum was set up in 1970 under the sponsorship of the La Porte City chapter of Future Farmers of America. A $5,000 matching fund grant from the National Bicentennial Committee enabled the Museum to purchase its present buildings.

The Museum is housed in the former fire station and town hall (built in 1876). The former jail (built in 1911) is the Museum's reception area. Special exhibits include a doctor's office, a dentist's office and a barbershop. Other exhibits include farm implements, military artifacts, religious items and a schoolroom.

The Museum is now owned and operated by the City of La Porte City. It is open every Saturday and Sunday from 1:00pm to 5:00pm. Admission is free, though contributions are welcome. For more information, call the City Hall in La Porte City at 342-3396.
