The Kilby Café and Gift Shop are located in the Orientation Barn at the entrance to Kilby Historic site. Originally the Barn housed work horses until it was damaged by the 1948 flood. In 1987 it was reconstructed by the Agassiz-Harrison Lions Club, using the original design and techniques, and is now our orientation area.

Your 1920s experience begins as you enter this orientation area, with friendly country hospitality and good old fashioned cooking. Call ahead for group reservations or to pre-order your lunch for take-out.
