The address on this page is wrong. It's actually off of Bray rd. The address listed takes you to the main office of genessee county p&r. Take a right out of the parking lot onto Genessee rd, go over the bridge, take a left onto E. Stanley. Follow that to Bray, take a left. The entrance is on your left.

Two women traveling with two small children (ages 4 and 6). This was an enjoyable day and more to do than I expected. Lots of period places to visit (blacksmith, cider house, school house, barber shop, etc). The train was very nice and better than I expected having been on a few "historical" train rides. We were allowed to sit... More

I went with my second grade on a school field trip and the adult enjoyed this more than the kids. The train ride was fun but the demonstrations & talks were over their heads except for the magic show.

Treated my son's family to a wonderful Sunday outing at the Village. Five adults and six children and we all found things that interested us. The blacksmith had a terrific demonstration of making mini horse shoes. He also explained early life centered around a blacksmith. The cider press was interesting but sadly all the pressings had to be dumped, it... More

Even though we don't travel far, it is always fun to stop in. My daughter loves the train and boat rides - what kid wouldn't?? Christmas time is so pretty and fun! Halloween is fun, but as my daughter gets older I wish it would update a little bit, seems out dated. Cannot say anything bad about CVHR. Would be... More

Strolling through the town is very pleasant and the staff are all very friendly (and knowledgeable). Definitely recommend the Genesee Belle tour. It's quiet and non-narrated, making it very relaxing.

Our family loves Crossroads Village, it's a great step back in time and a great learning experience as well. The Huckleberry Railroad is a unique chance to see what train travel was like "back in the day" and you can just imagine being in the 1800's and rolling down those tracks. The views from the Railroad are spectacular! I especially... More

Go right before Christmas, and go on the Christmas train. The grandkids loved it. Also, Halloween is another great holiday trip to Crossroads, go from house to house for the kids to fill their Halloween trick or treat bags.
