The fee to get in is outrageous. Theres NOTHING to do except walk around. The barn area is usually closed, a path thru the woods is closed, and the museum looks like a yard sale. The property itself is BEAUTIFUL, but when they tell you the admission fee, you stop and look around for amusement rides or something, and theres NOTHING. Lower the admission fee and more people may be willing to stop by and walk around and enjoy the peace and quiet of the place. Have a guided tour of the property, DO something because all people can do now is walk around and look at trees and an empty house and a half ass museum. Oh and refreshments? A water fountain. Obviously the place is run by a group of idiots not smart enough to realize they paid the entertainment way to much during the Heritage Festival, and due to this went broke. If you want a day out with the wife and kids, dont go here. If you want some alone time on a beautiful spot and are willing to dish out some cash, this place is for you.
Excellent experience! The talented, caring staff & volunteers make the visit truly enlightening. This place really needs to be preserved for future generations.
Due to funding not open daily. Would have been very nice to know that ahead of time instead of traveling almost 2 hours to visit. The info sheet we had picked up at the hotel had museum listed it as open daily.
