Oliver H. Kelley was from Boston and like many others he migrated west as soon as he turned twenty-one, settling in Minnesota in 1849. In 1863 Abraham Lincoln proclaimed the first day of Thanksgiving. Visit the Kelley Farm to explore what Thanksgiving was like on a "Yankee" farm in the 1860s. Visitors can hike the nature trails, explore the barn and root cellar, meet the animals and enjoy the aromas of a hearty Thanksgiving meal in the farmhouse. Be sure to dress for the weather. Warm refreshments will be provided. Reservations are required.
