my kids came here and then wanted to live in a 19th century farm. Life was much simpler then, I love that the buildings were preserved. We also saw an elk when we were walking!

This is a free activity that's nestled next to a babbling brook. It's interesting to see how the people lived and survived. You can sit along the way and listen to the brook. Pets are allowed on leaches too.

This was a great free activity for our family. The kids loved it and it is great for homeschoolers. The Rangers inside were very helpful.
