    Quaint historic village giving a real feel of the lives of the people who used to live here. Our tour guide, Dennis, was very knowledgeable and entertaining, and was good with our two young daughters, ages 6 & 9. We caught last tour of the day, and only wish a couple more buildings had been open. We'd definitely be back next time we are passing through.
