Thanks missyAustralia. It sounds as though you weren't able to book a mansion tour at the Marsh-Billings-Rockefeller National Historical Park. We're pleased you saw "A Place in the Land" and hope you'll have time to visit the Farm & Museum in the future!

We came with 3 kids (ages 1, 4 and 7) and all were entertained. They loved seeing the animals and just being outside.

While on the surface, this attraction seems to be about kids and animals in reality it is much more. An excellent and highly recommended video is well worth the 30 minutes investment. Thanks to the staff member who strongly encouraged us to watch it. Yes,...More

We plan to travel to the area of Woodstock with our family, including our two grandchildren ages 4 and 6, over next Thanksgiving to celebrate our 50th wedding anniversary. Are there activities there for our young ones and will there be a sleigh ride if there is no snow? (I'm thinking maybe a hayride?)

Congratulations on your 50th! Many activities are scheduled for Thanksgiving Weekend and horse-drawn wagon or sleigh rides will be featured as well. See you in November!
