What a great use for the old asylum!! If you like architecture, history, shopping, and food, this place is definitely worth a visit. Both the merchandise and the shops themselves are so unique.

High end shops, but worth going for a walk around, especially considering the history of the place. We didn't eat here or purchase anything, but it was still interesting to browse the shops and the historic photos.

Mainly go for the building and grounds, But one of the area's best restaurants, Tratoria Stella, is there, a nice bakery, coffee shop, weekend farmers market, Black Star Farms Winery and Left Foot Charlie's tasting rooms, some nice shops for browsing.
