Everyone there was great and friendly. The price is unbeatable. My worry though is preservation efforts seem to be null and void. The buildings are historical gems but you can see these gems disappearing before your eyes if some active restoration does not happen soon. It is a non profit but really everything was dirty and unkempt and basic upkeep was definately not happening. Screens from the centerpiece, the homestead, were hanging by a thread or completely off and on the ground. Our children must be thinking these pioneers are pretty dirty folks and we know that was not true. They were clean and fastidious people even if they had to haul water, they got it done. The barn was a disappointment because i could not see all the sign talked about, namely the separation for the milk processing. This was because it was full of stuff and only one section of the barn was accessible because of this. Had to look through the windows at the schoolhouse and there was not a path to the log cabin but I did go to it anyway. I realIy liked the cabin. I am hopeful more efforts will begin to clean and do the needed restorations to keep these wonderful gems available to us for years to come.
