Since 1999, the Friends have relocated donated farm outbuildings to the Farm to replace those torn down over the years. This includes the granary, chicken coop, Hog House and Corn Crib. Original buildings include the house and white barn.
In 2003, a period dairy barn was donated by neighboring farmers and was moved to the new parcel adjacent to the original farmstead, to serve as the park headquarters and year-round visitor center. The building will be called the Center for Rural History. Just prior to being lowered onto its new foundation, however, a strong windstorm blew the barn off its cribbing and destroyed it. An insurance settlement paid for replacing the barn with a sturdy, traditional timber-framed structure. Plans are being made to transform the barn into the a Visitor Center.
In 2011, Schumacher Farm tripled in size when the Dane County purchased an adjacent 78-acre parcel. The parcel is currently being cropped and will be developed in the future for recreational purposes.
