Give me a sign
May 2018 • Family
First of all, my wife and I schedule trips around history museums and living history so I was truly disappointed with my visit here. First of all, I found saw the street sign for High Street (not to be confused with the one in Columbus) but not anything indicating the Historical Settlement. Made a sudden sharp turn and about had to peel a speeding SUV off my bumper. The settlement buildings are about a block and a half south. There is one that apparently operates as a Band B now, a two story log building, and a more elaborate home that served as the first manse (pastor's home) for the nearby presbyterian church. All three buildings were locked and no one was around. I can understand if they don't open until Memorial Day, but there were no signs with operating hours anywhere. If it is by appointment only, it should say so somewhere. The only sign I saw anywhere was on a fence under a tree on the south side of the grounds that read "Caution Honeybees." There are lots of historic sites and homes in the greater Columbus area so I would pass on this place unless you go when you can actually enter the buildings.

My husband has done President Lincoln here several times and feels it is a wonderful location to teach from and about the history of our country.

Had my wedding here
Jun 2013 • Friends
I had my wedding at this site. It was beautiful. Nice places to walk around, hang out. Pretty flowers. If there is not an event, there is not a lot to do here, but when there is an event, it is definitely worth a look see. Creekside is within walking
Distance, so are restaurants. I wouldn't drive too far out of my way to come here though.:-)
