Visit Us!

Rocky Ridge Farm is only 45 miles east of Springfield, Missouri on highway 60. From Springfield take Highway 60 east to Mansfield and take the second Mansfield exit. Turn right off of the exit ramp and continue on that street into town. It dead-ends at the city square. Turn left at the square and continue for less than a mile to the historic home. Our new museum and parking lot is on the right, just after the little bridge. (Stop here for tickets) The farm house is next, just up the hill on the right. Additional parking is on the left.
