 The Schwenke Farm, located in the fertile East Bend Bottoms on Beaver Road, has been owned and worked by several generations of the same family. ​ The large, diversified farm includes one of the largest and most significant collections of historic farm buildings in the county, with structures associated with dairy farming, stock raising and tobacco growing. ​ These include several large timber-frame barns (one built over a stone icehouse), a drive-through corncrib and a tobacco stripping shed.  ​ The Schwenke Farm, located in the fertile East Bend Bottoms on Beaver Road, has been owned and worked by several generations of the same family. ​ The large, diversified farm includes one of the largest and most significant collections of historic farm buildings in the county, with structures associated with dairy farming, stock raising and tobacco growing. ​ These include several large timber-frame barns (one built over a stone icehouse), a drive-through corncrib and a tobacco stripping shed.  ​
