Each door opening from the courtyard holds a surprise regarding how the rooms were used in the 19th and early 20th century. Very casually run in contrast to places with high tourist attendance.

Really enjoyed this little piece of history, Lots of artifacts, tools, and other items from 200 years ago. Self paced tour through the 21 rooms reveals a different aspect of life here at the time.

This is a large house built in the 1800s when Cheyennes were attacking in the area. It is open for tours, but it does not have a restaurant. This attraction is misplaced.
