There is a spectacular 4th of July display of activities... More

Walking along Officer's Row gives you a flavor of how life was lived in the 1800's. Beautifully restored with many trees provides a peaceful walk.

Perfect springtime activity. The homes are beautifully maintained and the gardens surrounding each home are lovely. Tours of some of the homes are possible at various times.

There is no cost, but they do ask for a donation... More
