Historic but not much to do

My wife and I cruised through on a hot sunny day. The buildings are historic and very well kept. There are sheep and pigs roaming about and they are very friendly. There is not... read more

As a kid i remember it being more fun and characters to interact with. now its just buildings with no tour or characters. maybe one but only on special days are there people to interact with.

It was great to see the historic buildings set up the way they would have been. Unfortunately, that is pretty much all this attraction is. It would have been nice to see a little living history. It makes the town more alive.

The first weekend in October this year was fall festival weekend. I would love to go again next year. We spent about 5 hours walking around checking out the different vendors and buildings. If you like history and crafts, fall festival weekend is something for you.

Went back for the first time since I was a kid. I remember being to play there all day as a kid and not wanting to leave. As an adult I found myself thinking there's not much here. So if you're a 10 year old boy you will probably enjoy yourself, not so sure about anyone else.

My wife and I cruised through on a hot sunny day. The buildings are historic and very well kept. There are sheep and pigs roaming about and they are very friendly. There is not much to do here except take a walk. The admission is very fair/affordable. I bet kids would love the animals and the open space. I would... More

I have been a couple of times and kids love it. If you have little ones between 4 -13 they should enjoy it. Check their web site first for activities going on the day of your visit to get the most out of your visit! My son LOVED the blacksmith shop, he even got to help!

This is a great place for families to visit. Kids can help with different activities. Sheep shearing was popular when we were there.

The weather was so amazing on the day that we went so that made it a relaxing and enjoyable walk around the property. We had a good time looking at the buildings and reading the brochure as we went. The staff was busy setting up for an evening event so there were no characters to interact with and many of... More

We took grandchildren on the fall Arts and Crafts day, where artisans set up booths showing their homemade items for sale. Most were dressed in vintage clothing and our grandchildren liked the various stations where they could learn to play with vintage toys, games, archery, etc. There were many different food booths for lunch. We had a good time, but... More
