Absolutely fascinating and only a donation to get in with Free parking! We went for the 35th Country Jubillee on Oct 26 2013 This was our secound year going Will go back next year Its always alot of fun . Food Crafts Music Etc A village has been created of original homes, a church, school, barn, train station, fire station and lots more. The guides are all volunteers and their knowledge of their subject is superb. There are restrooms and a small gift shop which sells secondhand china, and some really quirky items, but no coffee shop. The bonus is the beautiful tropical garden which is immaculately kept and has a lovely little gift shop. This is not widely advertised and was not busy on the day we went. A little gem!

Our grandkids were able to learn how doctors during the 1800 operated and all the great innovations and ideas they had to create in order to keep their patients alive...the village is well organized and wonderfully kept and the volunteers are just a wealth of knowledge. The store at the village reminded us of back home and all the artefacts that our grandma used in cleaning, ironing and cooking. Great site to visit

Looked it up after discovering we weren't going to need to spend an entire day at Clearwater Aquarium.

What a cool place. To be able to tour the old homes, hear from volunteers how things were done 100 years ago and not to mention all the hands on stuff

We actually are already planning another trip back

Great volunteers and staff

Oh and it's free

This is a great place to take a stroll through history. The paths wind in and around the many historical buildings. Several times a year they have "Special Week-ends" which feature a different theme. I've been to their Folk Week-end, their Antique Appraisal Week-end, their Holiday Seasonal Decorated Homes etc. The Village keeps adding and expanding their "houses" keeping it interesting. This is a definite local place to bring/take visitors for a lovely afternoon stroll.
