“Step back in time~”
Reviewed December 31, 2012

Really feel that this place is a must see. It helps our kiddos to understand how difficult survial was in the 1800's. I learned about what chinking means (the white stuff between the logs) which keeps out the wind and cold. It was being applied during my visit. The buildings are rustic but beautiful.

“Waste of time and money--so mad I lost an afternoon at this place”
Reviewed December 26, 2012

What a rip-off! We had a Groupon for admission and I was so tempted to DEMAND a refund, as this place is a dud. The was NO ONE working out in the exhibits when we went. We simply walked around the "grounds" and looked at replica buildings. The exhibits look like something junior high kids put together. We love historical things to see whenever we travel, so we did go with an open-mind and determination to enjoy this event, but were so angry about the deplorable, pathetic condition of this place.

Nice representation of the olden days in natural western Arizona setting. Be sure to take the tour - it's worth the few dollars!

“A blast from the past”
Reviewed November 13, 2012

Visit how families lived and worked in the pioneer days. It was amazing to see the old school house, church and numerous homes of yester year. It makes you appreciated our current comforts so much more.
