The Evergreen Ridge Stock Farm is an educational complex, centered around three historic barns that housed a draft-horse-breeding business in the early 20th-century.  Open spring, summer, and fall, or by appointment.

The Maasdam Barns Welcome Center and the three barns also highlight the achievements of two local companies that were at one time the largest manufacturers in Fairfield, the Louden Machinery Company, and Joel Turney and Co.  Many of their products are on display, including Louden catalogues.

Visit the Maasdam Barns website to see these displays and exhibits, and for more information.
