  • Very nice and informative! Enjoyed seeing the historical buildings. Will definitely go again when I have more time. The staff was very friendly. It is not a big museum and more for a Sunday drive, out-of-the-way adventure. For better learning experience, I would still visit the exhibit in Pleasant View, KY over this one, especially if I were homeschooling, taking a group, etc.
  • Lovely setting and grounds. Informative staff but basically a self guided location.
  • Was somewhat interesting. The introductory movie was good, but the grounds weren't all that interesting. WOuld have been better if there were a few docents around to give information.
  • Loved walking through the house and seeing all the memorabilia of that time. Just a beautiful piece of property. I find the history of the Shaker's very interesting.
  • Almost one of a kind village. Founded by the shaker's, very nice bit of history.
