  • 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.
  • A great place to explore in the area with much history.
  • Educational, great place for a historian junky to visit.
