  • I have gone to this place so many times as a child and still love it now that I'm in college. It's historical and if you love old timey feeling places, hit this up! It'll take you back in time instantly. Although there are dirty and broken things, it's still totally worth it!
  • Very sad... every time we visit this place has got worse, so many things are just broken, dirty and poorly organized. and some of the building are now closed due to the poor condition. They use stuck on paper signs that are all peeling off and cant be read. This place needs to look at what other places do.
  • Great History Place to walk through. Get to go into the Buildings. Loved it
  • I really loved it. It brought so many memories when I was 9 years old. I hope I will go there again someday this spring or summer.
  • Educational, great place for a historian junky to visit.
