We spent a solid morning at Kilby Historic Site - so much history to explore, and the farm animals were delightful. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff and we really enjoyed lunch on site. Just a short drive to Harrison Hot Springs... and worth it!

Amazing site that's been kept in great shape. We were surprised how big the hotel was. Some nice exhibits. Also loved the animals running around. So cute. One warning: bring or wear mosquito spray. 😁

It's a great place for families and tourists to learn a little about the local history. However be prepared for it to get quite crowded in the gift shop since it is used as admission, cash register and a restaurant.

The store at the Kilby site is what brings the people out. Their home made restaurant food isn’t bad either. The little animal farm attached to the site is great for children, and the house attached to the store could have been my mothers. All...More
