This place is growing in size with the addition of new building from other places in Wisconsin. They have several building where you can walk through (school house, store, train caboose, passenger rail car, old train station) and see what these building looked like "back in the day..." They have a festival every year with food, music and other entertainment.... More

Take a walk back in time at Pinecrest. Many original old buildings transported from around the area to here. Gives one a feel of living in the "olden days". There are weekends when there are some festivities going on as well. Demonstrations done by volunteers. Has a church where one can get married also. Great way to spend a family... More

A gem in the rough. A historical village dating from the 1850's with original building relocated to this site. Re enactments by local historical members add to the experience. During our visit we were treated to a Christmas coral concert by singers from Lincoln High School in Manitowoc. A wonderful experience.

Old time small wisconsin town with small buildingd where they explain what small town life was like in the 1800s. Interesting to visit but a lot of walking around. Kids seem to like for the first hour but soon get restless and bored.

I went to Pinecrest Village with a friend who had not been there before. We went on a Sunday morning in May. We had the whole place to ourselves that made it extra special. We were able to look at all the exhibits and take all the time we wanted doing it. We both enjoyed all of the buildings in... More

Pinecrest Historical Village has a great layout of buildings from the late 1800's to the early 1900's. They have a really nice audio tour for every building describing who lived or worked there and the history behind each building. Every building has actual displays of items from the time period, and Pinecrest is one of the few places where the... More

These twentyfive buildings are well presented, the new visitors center is handicapped accessible, most buildings aren't.

I may be a bit bias here, as I have done volunteer work at the village. I love the place. There are special events that are taken right out of the 19th century. I very nice way to spend an afternoon exploring old buildings, breathing fresh air, and learning some history. There are usually staff or volunteers about to inform... More

Laid out beautifully like a real town, lots of variety and detail, only $7 admission. They give you an audio device in which you press the number of the building and it gives you a brief character narrative of its history. I found the narratives enjoyable. We were the only customers on a Tuesday afternoon, had the whole town to... More

My Wife & I found this village great for our hobby of taking photowalks. We had a very relaxing and unhurried day strolling the grounds. We came away with some very nice shots and an education into the early days of Manitowoc history. We will return soon!
