  • Lovely place! Very instructive and fascinating for those who don't know much of the wood industry of last century. People there are very kind and you can feel their passion. The site is very well organized, well equiped and clean. Trails are very pleasant and both kids and parents can enjoy the site as it is well secured yet quite authentic.
  • We had a great family day visiting the mill and riding the train! My son was excited to ride in the train for the first time. The conductors went out of their way to open up the room with the train models and let him look at them. Thank you for the memories.
  • our family loves going. the history the surroundings the train ride are all great.
