Some might why Wayne County even needs an agricultural museum. After all, America has become so urbanized in the past one hundred years that agriculture no longer feels relevant to most people. And while it is true that most people do not directly interact with agriculture now, it is also true that we are all affected by agricultural production.1 The relationship is complex, but it is still one that is worth learning about – after all, while populations are always the densest in urban and suburban areas, the majority of the United States is rural, with much of that being farmland.2 Therefore, museums supply invaluable information to its attendees, which is also the motivation behind the Buckeye Agricultural Museum and Education Center.
