But more importantly, Dr. Miyazaki's contributions to the community as a dedicated Japanese immigrant doctor and community community leader. It was...More

Great attraction that takes you back in time to the early 1800s. This historic home and gardens is lovingly cared for, and shown by, volunteers in the community. The home stokes the imagination and makes you pause to imagine.
