The Liberty Hyde Bailey Museum board focuses upon its mission: To educate others about Dr. Liberty Hyde Bailey, and in doing so, celebrate his life, his work, his philosophy, and his legacy.

This mission is realized through a variety of programs that honor Dr. Bailey’s significant works as a rural sociologist, educator, scientist, author, nature advocate, world traveler and horticulturist. The museum also houses a large collection of Bailey’s written works, personal papers and ephemera that is available for research.
