It is not only a great park, but they have two museums dedicated to the early Dutch and French settlers in the area. The Acadia one has a gentleman who is Dutch and knows a lot about the area.

If you are in the area it is worth a stop at this museum/park. The Arcadia house is worth a visit as well. There is Dutch and Tex Ritter memorabilia available for viewing and the gentleman who works there is very nice and informative.
