  • Came upon this historic site on our way to Dixon Illinois. Well worth the stop! Excellent guides. Stayed an hour to look at all the sites. Rick the blacksmith is a master. Very enjoyable demonstration!
  • Great place to stop. The tour was excellent and the tour guide Mary was the best. The blacksmith shop was the highlight of visit. We had Rick the blacksmith make us some screen door handles to take home. They need a directional arrow on the highway signs. Passed the location twice.
  • Very beautiful landscape, cool blacksmith demonstration, and learned lots about the history of John Deere.
  • Excellent blacksmith demonstration. Interesting tour, very friendly staff.
