This was a marvelous exhibit. I real step back in time. Beautifully laid out and authentic. Very hands on so it was great to actually touch or sit in the places others did hundreds of years ago. Wonderful experience.

The Buffalo Gap Historic Village is a great little place-- a little time machine with some great artifacts and stories of our past. The Village is most of a collection of buildings than a village, but it is a fabulous set up. The self-guided tour...More
