Very nice historical site you might drive by every day and not even notice. It has a small recreated village and it's highlights are the restored carousel, and a restored urban transit electric trolley.

Ok so they have an awsome merry-go-round here but there is much more. If you watch Pawnstars or Canadian Pickers you will see stuff here that you see on the shows. I came here when I was in school and I just keep coming back. It like walking around in the late 1800's

It offers artistic culture and is a totally unique little village. You will fine some great little cafes to relax and have a cup of coffee then wander into shops that offer art of all different kinds.

I take a field trip of grade 3 students here every year, and always learn or see something new, and also look forward to seeing some of the same old things. The carosel is terrific, the lady who runs the old schoolhouse should win an Oscar for her performance, and everyone is helpful and informative. Highly recommended.
