This is a hidden gem! What am amazing place to visit. The kids were able to truly experience how people use to live. It is rough and rustic.... But that is the point! Great place to visit! So happy we decided to stop and visit!

Very trashy, buildings smelled and were very unorganized Basically a bunch of old un-kept buildings sitting in the back of somebody's lawn. We spent 30$ for 6 people, it took us about 5 minutes to realize we had been taken. A shady tourist trap willing to rip you off.The family was extremely disappointed and upset. The front of the building... More

It looks like so many ghost towns, it looks dead, out of order, run down. The you talk with the lady owner, the older one who - if I am correct in recalling - you hear her speak about the old days and then the whole place comes to life. It is not about historically correct artifacts but it is... More

We tried the cassette tape tour but it wasn't what the kids wanted. Looking at all the old buildings was interesting. It seemed like a good family business and they were all very friendly.

We see the bad reviews and wonder why, as we loved it and yes it is run down, but I remember when I was a kid that a lot of us even in the sixties had some run-down things and I used an out house for real in the winter. The items really give you an idea what it looked... More

My Wife & I stopped during the Sturgis Rally of 2013 & were greeted by a beautiful , very courteous young teen age woman, who gave us a very interesting & factual history lesson you wont get from the main stream sources around the area. We also met her mother who gave us even more information & then started us... More

I was very disappointed. The cassette tape tour was hard to follow...and the narrators voice was soooo monotone. And they have not done any upkeep at all to this place. And they did just throw some things in some of the display buildings. One must have been used for storage for someone's ceramic collection. There were random things from the... More
