We saw this town on Trip Advisor and decided to go. It's a very small historic town that has all the charm of yesteryear. Our tour guide "Alicia" was very knowledgable and fun to be with.

We were here around Halloween for a spooky historical tour. It was not scary so that was nice, it was all true anecdotes and generally a fun tour. Tea and cookies served at the end. What fun!

If you live in the rolling hills of Willistown, you appreciate the open spaces and the feeling that time hasn't changed much. The intersection of Boot Road and Sugartown Road was once a vibrant little town; a tiny little center of commerce, education, and society called Sugartown. And it remains that today. An achingly preserved general store and Centennial houses... More

Historic sugartown has been meticilously restored, The tour was engaging, the carriage museum exhibits rare and early collections of carriages and sleighs in partnership with the CC historical society. The little town is amazing and not to be missed.

For a very small free, you can tour some remarkable restored structures that were once a vibrant village in the 1800s. A lovey carriage and sleigh museum, general store, home, bank barn, absolutely amazing book bindery. We almost passed this by, and I am so glad we did not.

Sugartown’s early residents created a vibrant crossroads that provided goods and services to its surrounding farming community. Through the preservation efforts of Historic Sugartown, Inc., visitors are offered a window into American life in an early 19th-century rural crossroads village by experiencing how people came together to conduct business, exchange news, and shared their lives as a community.
