This site is not worth a separate trip but if you drive by from a beach trip then it is worth stopping for a few pictures. Tours are offered on Saturday's for the inside of the houses, but the outside of these typical Cap Cod houses is the most interesting.

The windmill stands out in the middle of the park. As a previous reviewer stated, it's not worth an extra trip to see it, but it is interesting and does have historical value capturing colonial times in the area.

Both of these sites provided a lot of history about the colonial experience on the Cape, all in one small area. The blacksmith shop is also there, but was not open in May.

We were driving on 6A highway and there was a small art gallery in the park. It was good to stop by at the site. We have small children and they liked the park for playground and windmill (opens from 1 to 4). Well kept place.
