It is beautiful, rarely crowded and one of my favorite places. Patches the cow has been a resident for years and they now have another cow, several horses, chickens and sheep. It is fun to go check them out, particularly when you have little ones with you.

We took two of our grandkids (5 & 7) for the July 4th celebration. To say it was GREAT is an understatement. I'm not sure about visiting on non-event days

This just might be the most beautiful place in beautiful Colorado Springs. They have living history programs during the summer tourist season and great special events year round. The Fiddles, Vittles, and Vino bluegrass festival is one of the city's best events. The Family Fourth of July is great for kids. I love the Holiday Eve bonfires and hay rides... More

I have been here twice because my wife heard it was good and then visiting family wanted to go. Personally, there isn't that much of interest. Some old buildings with old furnishings. Not really a lot. It wasn't worth the price of admission to me.

I go to the "Garden" all the time, but this was first time here and It is so interesting to see how first settlers lived and worked. House is amazing and the grounds are very quiet and beautiful. Cherry trees had fruit and it was fun to pick one to eat right from very old trees that were planted before... More

It takes you to the hardships of the pioneer days through the nation. A unique place to learn from nature's blessings!

A gem hidden on the border of the Garden of the Gods. Serene, peaceful, and beautiful. This is a historical (early 1900s) setting with living history docents. The volunteer docents were great. They were friendly and professional, even the kids! If you need a couple of pleasant hours away from the hustle and bustle of Colorado Springs, this and the... More

Took a group of 10 kids ranging in age from 18 months to 9 years old. Everyone had fun and the bigger kids learned a lot. They got to wash clothes by hand, meet and watch a blacksmith, walk on stilts, make corn husk dolls and meet lots of people dressed in the period and ask questions. I suggest taking... More
