  • Neat historic site! I'm an out of town visitor and enjoyed walking the grounds on my lunch break.
  • Great historical experience, with plenty of seasonal activities to keep you coming back.
  • A fairly impressive piece of Kentucky history. The tour was fun as fun as we made it and it was good to wander around the property.
  • We did family pictures here. There are great scenery and so close to town.
  • Went for the outdoor movie series. The staff and the venue were great, although there were some AV issues.
