Our guide was very accommodating and knowledgeable. She took us around each building and she was able to explain about the different eras and cultural histories of the area. There is also a neat second hand book store in the reception building.

Stopped by to visit as we were in town visiting family. Great overview of local history with a beautiful view of the water. The market on Saturday was filled with local artisans, homemade delights and beautiful handcrafted items. Worth a stop.

Beautiful spot to enjoy some local history. Every second Saturday of the summer they hold a Farmer's Market with lots of local artesians, while you're there stop in and check out where the blacksmith works!

This is a cool little place. Get there for the demo and you can make a little picture stand! It's off the main road so don't be fooled by the map!
