It was fascinating to see this place. build in 1903 I believe it's beautiful wood architecture. The stairs, and railings were interesting but my son really enjoyed the tree house. Huge fireplace with moving clock was cool too. Love that there is lots of seats around for people to rest and relax and enjoy everything. Outside there was a huge nest up in rafters but we never found out what kind of nest. Must be for huge bird however. They need to clean up the poop on ground as people walk around it.
