Great little step back in time. Really awesome that they are able to keep up and maintain all these old building and tools. Must attend Pioneer Days if you're in the area when that is happening!

Come hungry because you will do some "samplin" and bring money to buy some of those samples. The price to get in and see all the old buildings--post office really cool!--and how to make a broom, grind corn, etc is not bad but you will...More

In October every year they have a great festival. Lots of fun for the family. Listen to live music while you eat great food and walk in all the log buildings. A great trip back in time to see how people lived.
