The Parks & Recreation Department and the Agricultural Center are community partners that work together to provide our community with various educational programs and activities.
The National Agricultural Center and Hall of Fame, or the Ag Center as it is more commonly known, became a reality when it was issued a federal charter by an act of the 86th Congress and signed by President Dwight D. Eisenhower on August 31st, 1960.
This rare federal charter, a historic beginning the institution shares with organizations like the American Red Cross, the Veterans of Foreign Wars, and the Future Farmers of America, charged the Ag Center to serve as the “national” museum of agriculture and a memorial to farming leaders. President Harry Truman’s plow and more than 30,000 agricultural relics are here.
