We enjoyed walking around the grounds and had a better understanding of the life there. The people at the site were friendly and helpful. Nice small gift shop and loved using our National Park Pass to get in free.

This was a fascinating local museum and park. It is not over commercialised and wandering around really immerses you in early settlement history and promotes understanding of USA roots Friendly and enthusiastic staff lovely location

Museum needs to be better lighted, most boxed exhibits were dim or not lighted. Use the provided number guide book to see the sights. The church is a work in progress to preserve . Bring hat and water for outside. Interesting
