  • Good experience
  • Great location for photography! We have done family sessions there several times!

A short grassy path hikes through early successional habitat of switchgrass and purple passionflower, a boon for small birds. The recreated Colonial Quaker vegetable and herb garden and vineyard is well maintained. A thrilling nature experience!
