“Living history - food demo & blacksmith - great for kids,”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 18, 2012

Visited here after Fort Mackinac visit. They were making food and offered me a taste, which was good. My 10 year old made corn meal. It was a good visit.

“Small but nice”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 15, 2012

An extension of the fort ticket admission. It is connected to the blacksmith shop, which was more interesting.

“Quaint House. Fun Blacksmith.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

The ladies in the house were sewing and cooking and explained the history of the house in a lovely way. The blacksmith told the history of the shop in a most amusing way.

We'd be sure to stop in again on our next visit!
