The Rentschler Farm was the working homestead of the Rentschler family between 1901 and 1998.  It now serves as a museum that illustrates farm living between the years of 1900 and 1950.

The historic century-old Rentschler family farm is now owned by the City of Saline and it has been turned into a museum depicting American farm family life during the first half of the 20th century.
