  • I went for the Candlelight Christmas event at the park this past weekend. Even though it was dark and I couldn't see all the buildings, it was still a great place. The main buildings were decorated as they would have been in the 18th century and lit only by candles. There was a guide in each of the buildings to tell you all about life in that time period. Everyone was very knowledgeable and friendly. I especially liked that this was a "hands-on" park so you could really interact with your surroundings. In addition to the fort and additional houses nearby, there is also a museum telling you a bit about the history of the area. The price is also very reasonable. The entrance fee is only $8 and you get full access to the grounds. If you like bicycling, the rail trail runs right through the park, as well. Overall, this was an enjoyable experience I would definitely recommend. I look forward to going back and seeing the place during the daylight too!
  • Wonderful hiking trails, perfect for my dog. Paved or you can branch off into the woods. There's always geese or ducks to feed too.
  • Thoroughly enjoyed this beautiful Place. The cemetery is full of history that I found fascinating.
  • Nice place. Small but they pack a lot in here. Great historians there to show you what life was like on the frontier.
  • Awesome 18th Centry show with great items for sale. Sat 9:00 to5:00 and. Sunday 9:00 to 3:00.
