As usual of my travels, I came here for a railroad history. The Pioneer Village is awesome, but I proceeded right to the Cedarburg Depot - the purpose of my trip. There is a small railroad museum inside the depot. Outside, there is a stretch of railroad track with a caboose on it.

This is a great place to learn about the history of Ozaukee County. During the open season (May to October typically), you can take a tour on the weekends, or go there when they have special events so that you can tour the buildings and take in a reenactment, bluegrass festival autumn festival, or antique tractor show. They have one free open weekend each year to kick off the season. This is a great place for family friendly fun and educational at the same time.

Very interesting especially on the old stem days. I also enjoy the feel of the building especially the blacksmith the whole time you are there you feel like you are stepping back in time.

You get to see the old craftsmanship, the old clothing for the time period. Buildings, machines, and train cars are all there to see !

I have lived near this place my entire life and it brings a real rustic feel to the countryside. Every year there are festivals and Pioneer Village brings many people to our area. The one thing I enjoy the most is the Civil War Weekend. The admission is minimal and Pioneer Village is also connected to a very nice picnic area where a family can enjoy a picnic lunch and make a family day out of it.

The key to getting the most of your visit is to go during a special event when there are plenty of docents. We went for the free opening weekend and really enjoyed it. My son made butter, washed clothes and hung them to dry, watched the blacksmith, did lessons in the school room and enjoyed an ice cream social. The quilts on display were beautiful. There were several craftsman doing various chores using older equipment. It was very educational. It's very much like Old World Wisconsin, but the beauty is that it's much smaller so it's doable in a couple of hours and is easy for small children and adults who don't walk that well any more. I will definitely go again for the Revolutionary War Event in August.

Unfortunately the items and individuals remind me of when little kids dress up to pretend and forfeit the authenticity element of the role playing. The village seems to be more of a gimmick to equate the city as an old time place worthy of tourist dollars. Skip the charade and go to a real historic place (e.g. Bunker Hill, Chicago Fire-Water tower, Golden Gate Bridge et cetera) or a national park.

We had a delightful time from beginning to end, enjoying the music and the venue in which we listened. The vendors were a wonderful asset along with the food served by the Ozaukee County Historical Society.

My mom's family settled on the prairie in Carroll County, Illinois in the 1840s. Some came from Maryland and New York. Others came from as far away as Hessen in what is today Germany.

Touring the fine displays at Ozaukee County Pioneer Village gave me a little more insight into what my ancestors' homes probably looked like, and the kinds of farm and household tools they used daily to make a living out of the earth.

If you have any interest in such things, this is a must-see operation.

This all-volunteer effort also has special events worth checking out like Bluegrass at the Village in August, blacksmith workshops, tractor shows, and other fun stuff.
