Loved this place. It was very pretty. We walked around the trails and it was beautiful. The rocks down by the river entertained kids for hours. The gift shop had cute things also.

Being a history buff I enjoy all things old It was very interesting to see how people went about their daily lives, before all the "modern necessities" That we have to have today.

We actuly parked in Lake view park, and took the foot path, Lake view walk, around the bay, with breath taking views over the bay, and in mid fall, the leaves and surroundings were beautiful.
