See how people live and work in the early days. Live demonstrations on special event days. Buildings are from Barry County at the turn of the century and restored for this lovely park.

This is a great museum showcasing life in the late 1800's early 1900's. There are a number of agricultural exhibits as well as a small town setting complete with a small church. Tremendous opportunities for spending a day and taking some awesome photographs.

Great place for family and individuals of any age. See an old school house, general store, and get a feel of a bygone age. They have many different events throughout the year and is an excellent inexpensive experience for everyone.

I've been to this park when visiting the state for family member's company picnics and civil war reenactments. It's a very large park with great historical buildings. I recommend for a day trip with family and friends.
