A very authentic looking replica of life during the civil war. They've done a fine job! A good historical look at our past.

Small area but interesting history in the small structures. Nice to get out and stretch your legs and learn a little history.

Small, well-marked area, easy to find, parking. Little-known campaign of Civil War in west. No visitors center but the Military Museum nearby has good display on the site. About 30 mins of history reading but you can walk the grounds a bit.
