Eclectic farm collection offers visitors window to the past


Norman Skinner is a man of few words but many accomplishments when it comes to collecting. Throughout his life he has built up a collection of everything from tractors, to classic cars, to entire buildings. While the variety is amazing, each and every piece holds meaning. 

“There are things in here that you won’t see no place else.”  says Skinner 

Skinner has devoted decades to saving local farm buildings from across Western Indiana. In many cases, he has moved them from their original locations to his farm on his own. It has been a challenging mission, but one he says is worth it. 

“I know if I didn’t do it, it wouldn’t be around too many more years.” says Skinner 

The Skinner Museum does not maintain regular hours, but interested visitors can learn more by visiting the museum’s Facebook page.
