    I grew up going here. It's beautiful - serene during "off" days and cheerfully bustling as a replica 1800s town during events. I will say that there's a bit of a walk to get to it, but you get to walk past the park's buffalo habitat. Go during an event, take a little cash to buy some candy or a souvenir from the General Store, and enjoy.

    Historic fun things to look at, plus it's beautiful scenery. Always clean and well maintained. Lots of walking and moderate hills.

    Nice replica of an 1800's town. Be prepared to walk. Open all day from dawn to dusk

    Really beautiful place to walk around and/or take photos. Love the history and the upkeep. Seeing the bison is exciting as well!
