This is a small area with a few buildings and placards to read to learn some interesting history about the town and its settlement. There is a machine for buying chicken feed if you want to feed the chickens.

I went to the park yesterday - and the interiors of the buildings seem to be closed for the season. However, there is no reason not to walk around and look inside of the windows. The setting is beautiful, and there is no admission charge.

The park is not large, and contains several buildings preserved from the 1800's. Several are furnished as they would have been when in use by early homesteaders. It is self-guided, with informative brochures available to learn more about the buildings and the people who lived...More
