This is a nice area where you can take a self tour and learn a lot about the early settlers of the south and how they lived. I highly recommend coming out when there are special events happening.

If you are interested in Trail history, this is a must see! Restored buildings right along the path of the Santa Fe Trail. Excellently done.

My wife and I stopped here before going to Bent's Old Fort NHS (which is really great). The place looked abandoned, except for a small trailer towards the front of the property that showed signs of habitation. Everything was overgrown and the trails/paths were unkempt....More

This attraction provides a historical walk back in time. It's a self paced walking tour with great educational signs. A quick stop for a lot of learning !
