“Great Family Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 1, 2012

A great way to spend an afternoon with young children. You can go back in time to experience living in the wilderness.

“Beautiful setting”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 21, 2012

Set in a wooded canyon near the Mississippi river. This is s replica of an early19th century midwest village. The buildings are very interesting, and the setting is quite beautiful.

“amazingly detailed historical town”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 8, 2012

I was as fascinated by the history of the place as I was by the town itself. The original owner purchased an abandoned quarry, cleared out the junk, and began painstakingly recreating a frontier town. The buildings and artifacts are amazingly authentic and detailed. Sadly the city of Fulton now owns the property, and there is a political battle regarding its future. In the meantime it depends on dedicated volunteers to maintain the property on a shoestring budget.
