Reviewed July 8, 2013

I loved the stage coach ride! Its definitely the main attraction of the site & its worth the visit. The ride is fairly quick, which makes the wait time short even on the 4th of July when it was pretty busy. Even though its quick it is long enough to be inside a stage coach.

“Take the Family”
Reviewed June 28, 2013

Activities year round. Check often for schedule. New park across the street is being improved again this year. This should be a must visit site for families, lots to learn about. Family friendly facility. Kids will not be bored.

“Definitely worth the stop”
Reviewed June 16, 2013

The stagecoach ride is a memorable experience for both young and old. It certainly makes you grateful for what we have now. The employees (in character) do a great job of explaining everything that took place during that time period, and operating the equipment. My son thoroughly enjoyed himself here, as did I. I recommend taking your time to actually soak up every detail of the farmstead (including the interactive museum), everything from the house itself to the ice shed. That's what makes the trip so worth it! And active military don't pay to get in.

“Giddayup!”
Reviewed March 2, 2013

Went there for a Chamber of Commerce event and it was a great time! I don't know if they do this regularly, but they had real stagecoach rides, a working blacksmith, and tours of the actual stagecoach stop building.

“You have to go see this!”
Reviewed February 15, 2013

This is an interesting trip back in time. We enjoyed the demonstrations that were going on; someone was churning butter and the blacksmith was at work.
