Located on the 450-acre Burden Research Plantation, this museum is an outdoor teaching and research facility which is put together in three sections. "The Barn" includes pre-industrial artifacts such as farming implements, household utensils, woodcrafts, and textiles. Buildings of the Working Plantation furnished with "period" pieces, including a commissary, overseer's house, kitchen, slave cabins, sick house, school house, blacksmiths shop, sugar house, and a grist mill, offer a look into how the plantation looked and worked during the 19th century. The Folk Architecture is a group of seven buildings, which include a church, pioneer's cabin, shotgun house, an Acadian house, and a small cemetery, which portray the varied cultures which influenced the construction of the times.
