It is owned by Havering London Borough Council and run in partnership with the Hornchurch and District Historical Society. The museum holds around 14,500 artifacts of domestic and agricultural use. As of July 2006, it is open at selected weekends only from 10.30 a.m. to 4.30 p.m. from April to October.
The museum opened in 1976. The thatched barn in which the museum is located was built in 1450 by the nearby priory (dependent on Waltham Abbey). Although commonly known as the Tithe Barn, the building was never used for the collection of tithes and a grange barn might be a more accurate designation (Upminster's real tithe barn adjoined the Rectory in what is now Gridiron Place)

Whiskey Row - refers to a block-long stretch from 101–133 W. Main Street that once served as home to the bourbon industry in Louisville, Kentucky. The collection of Revivalist and Chicago School-style buildings with cast-iron storefronts were built between 1852 and 1905. In 1857, the buildings were built and used to store whiskey barrels that had been produced from the distilleries nearby. On a list of Louisville Most Endangered Historic Places, the buildings were slated for demolition in 2011, but an agreement between the city, local developers, and preservationists saved Whiskey Row. On July 6, 2015, a fire partially destroyed three of the Whiskey Row buildings extending from 111–115 W. Main Street. Developers vowed to continue redeveloping the properties. The accidental fire began in the basement of one of the buildings that were at the time being renovated. Thankfully, the buildings were vacant and there were no injuries. As of today, Whiskey Row the buildings have been renovated into Old Forester Distillery (its original 1880s home at 119 West Main Street), luxury apartments, restaurants, and retail businesses. When the entire Whiskey Row project is finished, the 100th block of Main Street will include a distillery tourist attraction, two upscale hotels, and a huge retail outlet.
