We saw this on our way to the Deaf Cultural Center. There is a nice mural depicting a stagecoach out front. It's a fun stop if you have time.

When my kids were asked what will you remember from this place, they say, "Horses which are REAL and drive you in a 'mud wagon'!" Yes, if you want to create memories, go.

That is adorable! Our horse teams drive the mud wagon, stagecoach, and if we're lucky, a sleigh through the snow! Don't forget to share your memories with us on our Facebook page!
