Sugar Hill Sampler is a unique experience...Gift Shop and Museum, thoughtfully displayed in an colonial barn built by the family’s ancestors...the 1st permanent settlers in Sugar Hill who came by ox cart into the wilderness about 1790.
Where wagons rolled in with tons of hay, and farm animals called home, has been sensitively modeled into 4,000 square feet of display and museum space framed by hand hewn beams, old barn boards and even some original flooring cut from this farm’s forest in the 1800’s.
Visitors came from far and wide each year to browse, sample our homemade products, explore our museum and photo gallery of area history and lore.
