  • Just go, and check it out right out in the middle of the country, it's refreshing. Take some money and good walking shoes. It's a great family day. 
  • Fall Family Days is great trip. It's history of the thumb and how life was back then. Life is great and to know how it was is even better.

  • It is unique, one a kind place and not expensive. Very low crime rate in the area.
  • Just a fascinating home from a earlier Era. The barn is one of a kind, glad i took a side trip to stop and see it. We got hit by a horrible rain storm so I was unable to take pictures at the end of the tourer as I had planned
  • Nice place to bring your family and see some historical history
  • Always fun going there as a kid. I remember the sorghum, donuts, and cider the most. :)
  • Awesome place to visit and experience how life was in the 19th century . September 678 the 2014
