The town itself was very cool and historical. The tour guide on the other hand wasnt great. He was constantly coughing, he was hard to understand/hear, and he didn't really share anything historical about the buildings. I would reccomend coming here but tour it as...More

This is such a neat place to visit, we enjoy going into and looking at the old buildings. Can't get enough of the history and character of these buildings. Wish it was open more often.

We went during a special event they had while we ended up being in town. Something like a pioneer day. The buildings are well kept and we enjoyed the actors who put on a little bank robbery show downtown.
