We had been there many, many years ago, and I remembered the Nature Center as a very enchanted place. It still was, but I thought it had lost a bit of its charm. There was no more Peter Rabbit Marmalade or Cherries in Kirsch. We...More
I wanted to visit this place because I love Thornton Burgess stories. There was a great little museum about him, a sweet library, a walk through the wildflower garden and comfortable chairs by the pond where we watched the swans and a turtle. We finished...More

I didn't have a clue what this was except that there was a sign that said Jam Tasting today. What a delightful find! Yes, there was jam and other lovely things in the gift shop but the old fashioned kitchen where they still make jams...More

There was very little on display about Thornton Burgess, a famous children's author in his day. The museum was mostly a library of his books. The wildflower garden was lovely. At our mid-afternoon stop, the animals weren't available and we couldn't visit.

At about the same time both Potter and Burgess created a character named Peter Rabbit. I am not sure who was technically published first. At some point a copyright court battle ensued as to who had the "rights" to the name... More
At about the same time both Potter and Burgess created a character named Peter Rabbit. I am not sure who was technically published first. At some point a copyright court battle ensued as to who had the "rights" to the name. The court ruled that it belonged to BOTH. The nature center can provide full details if you visit (or perhaps call them) They are quite convincing as to Thornton Burgess being the originator.
