I like history and this was a bonus because of the historical buildings on site. They have all the normal farm animals one would expect in this area. There is a nice family cemetery back in the woods, their is a trail to it.

The park itself is great! They have an old fashioned, running farm, teaching you all types of things! I mostly do the free fishing at the pond when I have time. You don't need a license, just your pole and bait!

This is a great place to take young children that like to see the farm animals up close. It is a blessing to have places nearby to visit like this.

A great family-fun place. The museum has several interactive stations that demonstrate early american life and traditions. The kids loved the candy store in the gift shop. Explore the village and the duck pond. On the weekends enjoy hay rides.

It's a decent park with a little makeshift farm and village set up. I enjoyed it, but haven't returned since. I'd recommend for locals.

We live just 5 minutes away and eat our take-out suppers there often. It is so much fun to watch the ducks and geese and watch people fishing.

We had to kill some time while I was at a conference in Dayton, and so we stopped by the historical farm. It was great! There is a living history area where the family had their homestead. It's well maintained and there are plenty of animals to see. My favorite was the donkey in the pasture that had a herd... More

Watch for the special events when there are additional programs going on and many people to explain demonstrations.

I like going here, just haven't had time. Have animals and special events, lots of music. Usually folk, bluegrass, and other American music. Just off I70 near Huber Heights, it is really easy to get to!

This place sends you back to the good old days. When times were simple and things were safe. A time when people actually earned a living, a time when mommies were home tending to kids instead of dropping them off and letting strangers raise them. A must see place. I love it
