Thursday nights are family nights where my children were taught how to play games from the 1800's while my husband and I could relax. We got to hear stories about what life was like last century. We all loved the stage coach rides!! All ages can participate, The best part is this is a "free" activity!!

The Character Actors were terrific. Extremely cordial and knowledgeable. TIP: Early afternoon seemed like fewer visitors and the staff had more time to tell about the site.
