Garfield Farm Museum

To all our friends in the Chicago region, Rockford, Springfield-Decatur and Las Vegas watch your ABC station this Sunday May 14th (maybe May 21 for Las Vegas) to see coverage of the 2016 Antique Tool Show on “Built to Last”.

In the last ten minutes of episode “Hearts and Hammers” come views around the farm, interviews with tool collectors, etc. are aired. 
ABC 7 Chicago and the Chicago Regional Council of Carpenters Labor Management Committee teamed up for BUILT TO LAST, an informative series of half-hour specials exploring the skill, training and artistry of union carpenters and contractors. The program is now in its fourth season.
BUILT TO LAST is produced in association with Chicago Based AnswersMedia.
However for those savy in the way of the modern world, why wait? Go to (I think this link should work) to see the episode now.
