“Nice little village”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 19, 2013

It is just a small old time village, not much to do there except walk around and look, but interesting if you haven't seen it before.

“This is a great Historical Village”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 29, 2013

Very interesting, many buildings and the biggest collection of old tractors. The log cabins were furnished and the contents as interesting as the exteriors. Great potshot.

“bring back memories”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2013

if you visit make sure you have a few hours because you will not want to rush . take time to visit every building to see the different displays from the iron bridge to the farming section . the park is very clean and easy to walk through . check the schedule and visit when the smittys are working , this is a real American history lesson so take your time when you visit .
