The Cockayne Farmstead collection is comprised of a c. 1850s farmhouse containing its original collection of over 3000 objects and over 15,000 primary documents.

The collection, amassed by four generations of the Cockayne family, spans the 18th and 19th centuries ending with the death of the last owner in 2001.

The house has been described as being "arrested in time" with the last major renovation occurring around the turn of the 20th century.  

The Marshall County Historical Society is head of the preservation of the Cockayne Farmstead!
