Nice recreation

Have been many times, took a week class there years ago, and took my granddaughter last year. She liked it, especially the sheep and horses and cows. And the cat, she says.

This is a great place to take the family. June has a great weekend celebrating children. There are games to include ball games from 1865. The people of 1865 missouri town volunteers dress in 1865 clothing while demonstrating various daily aspects of living in 1865. October also has a fall craft show and special weekend. Don't miss the Christmas weekend!... More

It was great to see the historic buildings set up the way they would have been. Unfortunately, that is pretty much all this attraction is. It would have been nice to see a little living history. It makes the town more alive.

The first weekend in October this year was fall festival weekend. I would love to go again next year. We spent about 5 hours walking around checking out the different vendors and buildings. If you like history and crafts, fall festival weekend is something for you.

Went back for the first time since I was a kid. I remember being to play there all day as a kid and not wanting to leave. As an adult I found myself thinking there's not much here. So if you're a 10 year old boy you will probably enjoy yourself, not so sure about anyone else.
