Meadow Farm, one of the last remaining 19th-century farms in Henrico County, Virginia, is now an 1860 living history farm focusing on middle-class rural life just before the upheaval of the Civil War.

Costumed interpreters provide insights into the lives of Dr. John Mosby Sheppard, the owner of Meadow Farm, and his family. On select weekends, they demonstrate daily and seasonal activities in the farmhouse, barn, doctor's office, blacksmith forge, kitchen, fields, and pastures.

The Museum also offers a full schedule of workshops, special events, living history programs and volunteer opportunities throughout the year. The Meadow Farm Museum Orientation Center features a reception area for visitors, exhibit galleries, a gift shop and program room.
