A beautiful, peaceful area despite its history. Well-kept grounds, wonderful museum, Q & A session and an entertaining and informative tour of Prichard House provided by knowledgeable volunteers made this a great place to visit. They also offer special events like Highland Games and reenactments....More

Came here on the recommendation of a local friend. Knowledgeable volunteers, beautiful vistas, period artifacts. Ask about the ghosts in the Pritchard House! Want to return for a special event.
