  • A hidden gem! You crest the hill and a small but complete 1800s town unfolds before you. Nestled in a valley, it feels as though you're in olden times... Great job of keeping it authentic too!
  • People were great! Experience was an absolute! My family and I enjoyed oneself too the fullest! Thank you for keeping the dream alive!
  • Wonderful gem not far from town. 80 acres taking you back in time. Great selection of old buildings, houses and even a church you can have wedding at.
  • Not enough activities when they do a festival, not enough festivals for that matter, but overall it's educational and interesting.
  • This is a very interesting historic area to visit. We had special permission to camp out with my son's Cub Scout pack and it was a great location for sightseeing, education and (of course) lots of fun!
