Historic Pioneer Village
Aug 2018 • Family
The historical society of Crosslake has done a wonderful job of creating an authentic pioneer village. It is fun to explore the buildings and even better when you speak with a guide. There will be a lot happening this August 11th. The kids loved the schoolhouse and pumping water. Definitely fun to step back in time.

A Pioneer Village Visit
Aug 2017 • Family
If you have not seen a pioneer village, this one is a good representation. They have a general store, house, school, etc. to visit with docents and good signage to read too.

Interesting Venue
May 2017 • Couples
We enjoyed seeing a variety of historical exhibits and talking with the individuals regarding details.
Crafts were well covered by vendors including soap, blacksmithing, maple syrup, bee keeping, and llamas.

Really fun and informative for the whole family!

Halloween haunted attraction was also really fun but more suited for older teens and adults- but a very good production for Crosslake! Totally worth going! The Historical Society offers so much in terms of education on the history of the area and it's absolutely fascinating to learn about! Gangsters, Ghosts, Logging, Resorting- it's all here and you'll love learning about it with your little ones!

Walk from the Campground
Aug 2016 • Couples
What's really great about the Crosslake Historic Village is that it is just across the street for the Core of Engineers Campground in Crosslake, MN. This is a wonderful attraction for families! Every building is an old, old cabin with a story of it's own that has been moved to this wooded site creating an "1800's Village." Not only is it fasciinating to peer into the past of an old school room, logger's cabin, or country store, but it's educational. Our favorite is the Artisan Fair that takes place mid-August - when local artisans demonstrate their skills weaving rugs, making soap, etc. You also might visit at the end of September for a special evening of Cidar and a Candlelight Tour through the Village -- which is absolutely beautiful!

Learning Center, not just facinating look back at the way it was...

One evening we stopped into the Historic Village for a lecture on diving around the area lakes. Since there is so much history in the Whitefish Chain of Lakes and the Gull Lake Chain, we learned a lot. We have been back to see some living history demonstrations as well. Very interesting!!!

Such a sweet spot to go to each year, especially if you can go at the end of the season for the candle light tour. They do a great job and they make it special.

Excellent outing for the whole family - and it's free!
Jun 2015 • Family
This is a small village made up of mostly original buildings from around 1900, furnished as they would have been. They include a one room school, a log home, a logger's cabin and more. It is open Sundays from 11-4 from Memorial Day until Labor Day, admission is free, and a docent will show you around. Great outing when you're in the area with family on vacation. The second Sunday in August is the Artisan's Fair, where up to 30 people demonstrate old-time skills like candle and soap making, blacksmithing and wood carving and sell their products; there is admission that day.
