The story behind this charming cottage and the cemetary is really interesting and one worth hearing. Worth the short drive to find it just off the road.

This would be cool place to go if you knew Civil War history and was into this type thing. Not much at a quick glance. I do understand it has historical value.

We visited the farm this weekend when we first heard about it closing. The house has been altered in ways that are not accurate to the time. The plaster walls have either been torn down and replaced or covered completely with sheetrock which isn't a...More
