Great place to visit. So much to see and do. Old barns, nature hikes, ponds, farm animals, reenactments. The scenery is just beautiful, a must see in both winter and summer. Whenever friends and family visit we always take them here.

The kids love coming here, not just for the history exhibited about farm life in the past, but for the country store in the basement. (Okay, that is probably their foremost interest, but we still view some of the heritage of the family that lived here.) Old fashioned, with candy you can buy by the piece, it's something you never...

Gorgeous area, beautiful barns, very clean animals, especially love the donkeys out front! The candy store is cheap, and full of all kinds of old fashioned goodies, been going there since I was little. I recently did some of my sister's high school senior pictures over here. With the right sunshine and weather, this place is perfect!

This was a great outing for the family. We were able to walk around on our own accord and look at old barns with carriages stored inside, there were a few farm animals that the children just loved seeing. A blacksmith showed us how he worked iron th make a horse shoe. A gentleman showed us how Sorghum was made.... More

Extremely close to the city, yet it has the feel of being out in the middle of nowhere. I have walked all but one of the trails so far and they have done an amazing job of keeping the natural habitat in place while making it fun to hike. Would recommend hiking on these talks to anyone none are very... More

If you can go when they are having a festival, They have a blacksmith and lots of other areas to learn about life on a latter day farm. They play old fashioned games and have lots of fun for the family!

Love getting away from it all and strolling around the farm. I grew up on a farm many years ago and it is just a place I like to go to. Kids love it!

I'm getting to know Dayton by hiking in each of the MetroParks. I really enjoyed Carriage Hill. There is a lovely pond with a trail that goes all of the way around. The trail is grassy - wear shoes that can get wet if you go in the morning when there is dew. On weekdays at lunch, this park is... More

The park is very informative and interesting. Picnic tables are available. Staff was not really that friendly. Would have been better if the ones dressed in period costume had spoken to the guests instead of each other.
