Castle Farms

The 1918 Museum at Castle Farms was originally the Blacksmith Shop for Loeb Farms. It was built during WW1 with Albert Loeb’s income from Sears and Roebuck. The museum contains two separate collections. The first being the WW1 collection, which includes vintage uniforms, army equipment, posters, miniature soldiers, historic newspaper clippings and sheet music from World War I. The second collection includes items which were sold from 1918 Sears catalogs, including many toys, clothing, sports equipment, tools, toiletries and mail order food packages.  Original prices and descriptions from the catalogs are featured beside many of the items.
