Location: 1400 Seminole Valley Road Northeast

Phone: 319-378-9240

The flood has caused the closing of the Seminole Valley Farm Museum and Usher’s Ferry, both need extensive work and involvement from those that enjoy having a wonderful family type attraction with great history to go to.  If you can help, call the Chamber of Commerce in Cedar Rapids and offer your assistance.


  1. Looks like the phone number listed has been disconnected.

    Are you still open or did you get flooded out?

  2. The entire area was devastated by the flood and is not open. It will take the commitment and involvement of many, many people to get the museum and Usher’s Ferry back in operating condition.

    What a sad thing to have these wonderful, family type attractions no longer open and in need of so much help!

    I am the treasurer for Seminole Valley Farm Museum and speaking for the Board, we know there is a lot of confusion conserning us. The phone has not been disconnected, we are having trouble with the lines. Even though we will not be open regular hours, we will still be having our special events. Antique Engine Show, the 3rd weekend in May, free will donation taken at the gate. Reflections of the Civil War, 2nd weekend in July, gate fee undeterminded at this time. Fall Farm Festival, 3rd weekend in September, free will donation taken at gate. Seminole Valley Rendezvous, 1st weekend in October, free will donation taken at gate. Please remember we, at the Farm are a volunteer staff and operate from donations and gate fee’s. So any money from our events wil go towards flood recovery. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to contact me by e-mail or our P.O. Box, 605. Thanks to everyone for your concern. We will be back. Cheri Cruse
