It was interesting to see how a large family lived. The grounds include a visitor center with photos and artifacts, orchard, barn with a mule and ornery cow, and the family home. The staff were friendly and informative.

I've been coming here since I was a little girl, and nothing has ever changed! I love the friendly staff and the well maintained historical buildings of long ago. They keep everything neat and in great condition so all different generations can know what it was like to live in the 1800s. The food and entertainment during their festivals is very excellent as well!
