We stopped by and were given VIP treatment. We took a tour of the old houses and pub that included actors to present the information. We got to see a Bowie knife and a lot of the history of the area.

It's a place unlike you've been to in a long time. History is brought to life no matter your age. Children have activities, adults have treasures to behold, and the whole family has incredible sights to see!
