Murphy Barn

Murphy Barn UPDATED.jpg

The Murphy family settled in Bobcaygeon in the 1860’s after arriving from Ireland. In 1873, John and Mary-Ann Murphy purchased this farm plot and by 1900, it was a prosperous dairy farm operated by their son, Gerald. In the 1930’s, when installing pasteurization equipment was required the farm was forced to close. Today, the barn’s granery and hayloft house many of our special events as well as displaying our large collection of tools, implements and household effects.
