25 old homes and business structures relocated to Manitowoc county and made into a village. Walking tour that included an audio set that described each building/business using accents of the period being represented. Educational.

We happened on this by accident decided to check it out. do not go in expecting the buildings to be staffed with people in period costume. There is one person at the front and that is it. I recommend the audio tour.

Wonderful old buildings with furnishings. Great insight into the way people lived in this area. Neat old buildings. Narrated tour from a hand held device. Old country store, tailoring shop, houses, schoolhouse, etc. A baseball game was played the day I visited with the teams in vintage garb.

Several buildings dating more than one hundred years old from around the area make up this little village. We take our daughter there at least once every year. Always have a great day out.

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.
