A Great Place to See How Farming Was Done Before Mechanization. A lot of tours are offered in the Summer, including the frog pond. Horse rides are available at the stables. If you time it right you can see the plow horse teams contest.

Carriage Hill is a local favorite of mine - from the penny candy to the fabulous hiking trails. There is a working farm with animals to view and it's fun learning about the history of the park from the costumed interpreters. I am concerned that the folks selling the penny candy don't wear gloves and handle the money (I politely... More

Carriage Hill is always a favorite with the kids. They run and play. Feed the horses and go down the trails. My favorite time is fall. Will be going to see the beautiful colors on the changing leaves.

Has many trails and paths to take, through woods and open clearings. Has a few ponds, some horses and an old time candy shoppe.

I grew up in Huber Heights, and had the opportunity to volunteer at Carriage Hill as a child. The experience was great, we got to dress in traditional clothes, and perform farm related tasks. We did fun events like baking a cake for a mock wedding event on the property. I went back recently, almost 13 years later with my... More

It was about the 1880 farm life. We got there late, so we only went through some of the property. The one house was open to the public with no restrictions on walking through the downstairs. Farm equipment in the barns with horses and a large pig ready to deliver piglets.
