HistoryEdit

The house is owned and operated by Cherry Hill Township as an early 19th-century house with living history programs.

The Barclay Farm home is open for tours throughout the year, and is the site of special events in the summer months, such as weekly outdoor concerts. At Christmas time, the home is decorated and hosts winter events, including an annual craft fair.

The Barclay Farmstead Museum is open to the public on Wednesdays from 12:00 to 4:00 p.m. and the first Sunday of each month from 1:00 to 4:00 p.m. (March to November). Calling is recommended before a visit.

The immediate area surrounding the farm house has marked light hiking trails, a playground and a number of vegetable gardens, cared for by area residents who rent space during the summer to grow produce.
