The buildings include: the Fairchild/Knox barn, a 1929 dairy barn with milk parlor and hay barn, silo, and working windmill; the Honey Valley School, a 1916 one room school house; the Reno Methodist Church, a 1918 church; and a 1936 Fire Pumper Truck.

The museum and buildings are open to the public.
Come visit us!
Tuesdays 9:00am – 4:00pm
Wednesdays 9:00am – Noon
Sundays 1:00pm – 4:00pm

TCHS meets in the Reno Methodist Church building on the fourth Tuesday of every month (except June and December) at 7:00 pm for a brief business meeting and an historical program. The meetings are open to the public and there is no charge.
