The original Bob Evans Farm, Restaurant, Homestead, and Museum are in Rio Grande, Ohio. Make your pilgrimage to where it all began “down on the farm.” Yes, the original 1,000-acre Bob Evans farm, including dozens of horses. Begin your tour with Bob’s first restaurant, The Sausage Shop, and continue to the Homestead Museum, log cabin village, small animal barnyard, quilt barn, and much more. For a fee, you can also take part in many weekend events, such as the annual Bob Evans Farm Festival. The “Homestead” is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is where Bob and his wife, Jewell, raised their six children. It used to be a stagecoach stop and inn.
