A trip to the Malcolm McMillan Blue farmstead is a trip back in time to the days the Sandhills area was known as “the Pine Barrens.” The 1825 farmhouse and museum which sits on 7.5 acres provides insight into the lives of early pioneers in the area. The house is filled with authentic furnishings of everyday life during the 1800s. Visitors get a first-hand feel for what life in the 1800s was about by touring the farmstead. The grounds are shaded with 100-year old Darlington oaks and are composed of a windmill, gristmill, water well and numerous barns.
