The McFarland Historical Society is presently run by a small volunteer board. In the late fall a new theme is chosen for the following spring opening. A theme display is set up in the front window and a more elaborate exhibit is gathered and set up in the foyer of the museum. This display is kept up for the following season, opening on Memorial Day. Docents are present while the museum is open on Sunday afternoons all summer.

Currently we have three buildings: one houses our office/library; a second (converted church building)houses exhibits and provides meeting space; the third is a storage facility for artifacts. We are in the process of constructing an addition to the former church structure that will allow us to combine the office, library, and exhibit areas. Also, in conjunction with the County Fair Board, we operate the Brickyard Country School Museum during the fair and in September for first grade classes.
