Steppingstone Farm Museum is a hidden gem within Susquehanna State Park. It is a delightful place to bring family and friends. Rated #1 Best Museum in Harford County on Yelp and Harford Magazine’s Best of Harford County Readers’ Choice Poll (2018, 2019).

The Steppingstone Museum Store offers snacks, drinks and souvenirs. A key part of the vision for Steppingstone was to be a living museum. Achieving this has allowed the museum store to offer traditionally hand crafted pieces by museum artists and trades people, made right here on the grounds. Your purchase of these fine items directly supports the museum and spreads the knowledge of our heritage.


The museum is located within Susquehanna State Park and is part of the trail system. The trails are open for walking, hiking, equestrian (except for the purple trail) and biking. The park contains 8 marked and maintained trail paths that encompass over 15 miles. The Land of Promise trail and the Susquehanna Ridge trail can be accessed from the museum.
