  • Great information, lots to read and learn. The museum is quite large and has a great deal of older products. The homestead itself is very pretty.
  • It's a pretty cool place but I wish I had taken the guided tour. You can't go in the historic buildings on a self tour.
  • Great place to learn about the aftermath and recovery from the Civil War. Nice walks and picnic options too.

  • Really cool place to have a picnic
