I wish I could upload some of the amazing pictures we took here... the landscaping & scenery are just beautiful.
The site is dog-friendly, tho they ask that you not bring your dogs into the buildings. There is even a 'pooch post' outside the administration building!
The staff was friendly & very knowledgeable of the history of the site. There is a LOT to explore here, so take your time & enjoy. Go in, get the map & get the “Voices of Hopewell’ sheet. Several of the buildings have a voice box which gives you a little story to go along with what you are looking at. Listen & enjoy
Site is open 0900 – 1700 so make sure you get there early, you will need at least 2 hours to see everything & this is if you move at a quick pace. We took our time, did some exploring, asked questions & chatted with the staff, we were there 3 & ½ hours!
There are some farm animals to pet as well, so bring hand sanitizer, esp. if you have kids. It is recommended you wash your hands after petting the farm animals but the bathrooms are not next to the animals.
Overall, this is a great trip for anyone who enjoys the outdoors, history or just walking outside. A def. must see in my book!
