If you like history this is a good place to come and see. There are several restored buildings. The grounds are kept up we'll. The buildings are spread out but not so far that you can't walk to them.

Enjoyed about a 45 minute stop. FREE entry and short walk to visitor center. Very nice gift shop with many book options. Ranger escorted tour if you have 90 minutes or more for visit. NO food available.
