  • Great to be whisked back in time one goes into the door and then you are back in 1920-30 in a bag where you can get everything (almost) From seam to weapons, farfume and cheese, bread ... .... you named it all staff are volunteers who have put themselves into the family Kilby's and the on-site We got a dedicated story sweet and knowledgeable man with a fantastic telling ability, it was like being right in the middle of it all in 1926 the place was also a post office and Community Hall, the men only in the dark periods where you couldn't trap lumber or get in the ground with the plow , take down and retrieve the tobacco, and it could take all day, for one would just reach a game Dam, a nonsense and a SIP of coffee, which stood at the stove in the middle of the store thundered Mr. Perhaps an eye-opener for today's stressed out people so if you "have the time" do you get really a ' toe the experience

  • A nice place to come on a Sunday. Sunday is the best day because they serve a roast lunch. The quality was ok, I think the meat was over cooked which ruins it a little for me. The lunch was a big portion that is filling for the rest of the day. After lunch, it is worth visiting the museum. The best part of the museum was the store and hotel upstairs. The post office was interesting too. It was nice seeing all the old products. This place is well preserved and everyone should visit at least once.
  • Neat to drive around, but was closed for the season when we were there. Check ahead of time.
  • Awesome place to visit, no matter the age. Great activities year round. The people who work out volunteer there make it a memorable place to go
  • Such a beautiful little place with a cool history. The fudge from the little store was super tasty!
  • A bit off the well traveled roads, but worth a visit. Fun for children, as they have animals they can feed. Lot of background information available there. Nice little coffee shop there as well.
