Grounds open 9am-sunset year-round. "The Steppingstone Museum provides a necessary look into the past. It was founded that we shall remember where we came from that we shall be able to look intelligently into the future. It is dedicated to the men and women of the past century in this community who found that labor was honorable and satisfying to the soul; who found that craftsmanship, excellently performed, is the essence of art." -J. Edmund Bull, Founder

Did you know that Steppingstone Farm Museum is a private non-profit? Our funding comes from a mixture of fundraisers, rentals, grants and memberships.

This year has hit us hard due to being unable to host many of our regular events and rentals. We have been blessed to have received some amazing grants through Maryland Humanities, The National Endowment for the Humanities and Harford County’s Tourism Related Funding.

We would like to thank them for their generous support. Their contributions will assure the Museum will be here for future generation to enjoy.

Fall Harvest Festival - CANCELED
September 26th & 27th

It is with great sadness that the museum’s Board of Directors and Executive Director have decided that our Annual Fall Harvest Festival is canceled. With Coronavirus still in our communities and current State mandates and guidelines, making sure this event runs smoothly, safely and does not lose its charm, has proven difficult. Please know that this decision was not made lightly and was made with the community, vendors, volunteers and staff in mind. Our staff is busy planning smaller opportunities for 2020 and excited for a brighter 2021.

Come see us this weekend!

Can you tell me about the Rural Heritage event? I don’t see it listed in your events.

Sure wish you folks would reconsider your decision to stop the Blues and Wine Festival! We attended for many yrs and been to a few this yr but none stand up to yours! 😞😞
Thanks for a great day! We will definitely be back for another visit!
