The walk around the trails offered insight and wonderment in to the lives of the Indigenous Peoples. The restaurant needs to pick it up a bit and offer better prepared food.

Historic site, beautiful trails, throughout their website you can get familiar with exhibits, seasonal workshops, presentations. Summer time, they have developed a herbal garden and is amazing.
