“Ok”
Reviewed April 12, 2012

This was a nice place to visit. I was a little disappointed the buildings weren't open to walk thru though.

“Old South”
Reviewed March 17, 2012

Of significance to the end of the Civil War. Good when reenactment staff are there, otherwise just property to walk through. Small gift shop is nice.

“The TRUE end of the Civil War occurred here”
Reviewed January 10, 2012

Most folks think the civil war ended at Appomatox but there were still thousands of sodiers in the field. Johnston surrendered to Sherman at a small farm in Durham Station and the war was officially over. Nice museum, film, and historical buildings. The semi-annual reenactments are interesting too
