  • Fairly small historic site, but nicely maintained, with surprisingly knowledgeable guides. The lady in the general store was helping curate an upcoming feature exhibit on a talented scientist from the area. The store itself is remarkable, with everything from fashion and footwear, electrical and plumbing, pharmacy and lending library, grocery, dairy, deli and bakery and more in one large, very well organized room. Behind, through separate access, you can see the tiny post-office, kitchen and dining/parlor. Upstairs are exhibits on packaging, local history and fashion, as well as some example bedrooms. Below are storage, garage and other basement/workshop space, with a seriously intimidating old boiler. Another guide maintains the outdoors space, giving guided tours, answering questions, and taking care of the many assorted and very friendly animals, including rabbits, goats, chickens, ducks, pigs, sheep, and apparently, some cows. An orchard on one side has cherries and super old apple trees. The old barn, now gift shop and restaurant, houses a 50 seat dining area with simple offerings, takeaway drinks and snacks including fresh baking and ice cream, and washrooms. At $10 for an adult ticket, the price is a bit high, but probably necessary to maintain the place. Check the calendar for their frequent special events. Visiting on a cloudy Thursday in June, it wasn't too busy at all, but I'd imagine things would pick up on weekends and sunny summer days when kids are out of school.
  • The ladies in the site entrance were very nice and helpful. The general store was very cool, nice little stop for the family.
