    There is a lot to see and a large area to cover. Metal playground, firetruck, Chuck wagon, brick oven, world War II items, rocks, fossils, town information, and so much more. Not to far off the HWY 40. Great place to stretch and under priced (cheap).. (I've paid a lot more for a lot less) This is a GREAT find!!
