  • This place is just amazing!! All of the exhibits were thoroughly explained and very enjoyable. I loved that you could tour the main house as well as the barn. The flea market/craft fair was a lot bigger than we expected. Then towards the end of the day all of the "Old School" tractors lined up like a train to parade through the grounds. That was very fun to watch. We will definitely be back next year!!!!
  • We went to Fall Family Fun Days and had an awesome time. They had fresh cider, homemade doughnuts and apple pie, along with various other foods. There was also a bean soup tent. The soup was like my great-grandma used to make. It was fun to look at the antique tractors and shop the craft/flea market.
  • I love going to the Fall Family Days every year! Our family has made it a fun tradition. I love walking through the crafts and seeing the old grain mill.
  • Excellent location, lots of historical value. The Fall Family Days is a great event to attend.
  • Interesting historic structure in the quiet rural Thumb. The residents here enjoy talking about their history and close-knit community.
