Wheeler Historic Farm is a free public park and farm operated by Salt Lake County Parks and Recreation. The park and farm are available to visit 7 days/week. Purchase wagon rides, cow milking and tour passes at the Activity Barn. Office hours are Monday – Saturday 9AM – 5PM. Wheeler Historic Farm is comprised of 75 acres including walking paths, a working farm, a reception center, and historic home and a playground/picnic area.

Following the death of Henry Wheeler Sr. in 1943, the farm was sold to Sterling Furniture Co. and its president Richard Madsen. The Madsen’s ran the Golden Guernsey Cattle Ranch. With the help of the Junior League of Salt Lake, and private donors, the farm was purchased by the County in 1969. In May of 1976 Dr. A. Glen Humphreys, curator, farmer and director, moved on to Wheeler Farm and lived in a trailer. Dr. Humphreys contribution as Director and Curator for over 25 years are still a part of what you find at the farm today. With the help of Beverly Wheeler Mastrim and the State Historic Preservation Office the farm was placed on the National Historic registry in that same year. Today the farm is operated by Salt Lake County as a working farm, museum and outdoor recreation site.
