Get ready to create in MakerSpace! We invite guests of all ages and skill levels into a safe, structured environment where you can engage in creative, self-guided making. Our hope is that you learn how to connect early settlers’ survival ingenuity and unique Appalachian problem-solving skills with today’s activities and technology. We offer various activities and maker stations, so be sure to stop by each time you visit.
Also featured in Makerspace are the "Generations" murals, which chronicle pop culture events from 1940 to 2009, with each decade given its own piece. The murals begin with moments including Pearl Harbor, Elvis, and Jackie Robinson, and conclude with images of Pat Tillman, Taylor Swift, and Michael Phelps. Where else can you see "The Day the Earth Stood Still" with "The Matrix," George Reeve's Superman with Robert Downey Jr.'s Iron Man, and Marshall University sports legends Hal Greer and Frank "Gunner" Gatski with Chad Pennington, Randy Moss, and Byron Leftwich? View the amazing artwork that sparks not only creative ideas for makers, but also stories and memories that can be shared with those around you.
Heritage Farm was declared an Ambassador of the Maker Movement by the White House in conjunction with the 2016 National Week of Making. We are excited to see what you create! Learn more.
