Bement-Billings Farmstead

Route 38 North

About Us
The Bement-Billings Farmstead is a living history museum which interprets domestic life, agricultural practices and the natural environment of the early 1800’s. The property includes the original Bement farmhouse, a replica blacksmith shop, a reconstructed threshing barn, additional out-buildings, and 90 acres of the Bement family’s farm land. The Railroad Depot highlights the history of transportation and commerce in our region. Educational and community activities include formal school programs and community group tours, two major festivals each year, summer visitation hours, and a children’s day camp. Several craft guilds practice 19th century skills. Young people aged 9-18 participate in the Youth Interpreter program.

Our museum sites offer regularly scheduled visiting hours during the warm months. Many of our activities for members, the guilds and Youth Interpreters operate year round using community facilities. The business office is located on the second floor of the municipal building in Newark Valley and is open year round.
