  • Wow -- we were on our way to another location and the highway we were on just happened to pass through this state park. What a find! This town from the early 1800s was a hub of activity until the rail...  more »
  • This place is really worth checking out. It has all kind of history. The day we were there you could enter a least a half a dozen buildings. I enjoyed the courthouse and the hostel as well as the gun ...  more »
  • If you enjoy history this will be a nice stop for you and it's only minutes from the interstate. Houses and businesses built in the 1800's that are in remarkable shape. Take the tours and eat at the o...  more »

  • We drove 5 hours just to visit this park and it was a little disappointing. Not many of the employees were very knowledgeable, starting with the gift shop attendant who explained how it all worked. I asked her at the beginning how long it would take to do everything and she told us approximately 2 hours, however I would say it would probably take closer to 4 at least. So we paid to see all the exhibits thinking that we had time and it turned out with how slow the staff moved and how spaced out everything is that we only had time for 2. None of the doors to the exhibits were open as we walked up so it felt as if we weren't even suppose to be entering, and none of the staff was knowledgeable. It is definitely something that has the potential to be very cool, but it just wasn't worth a 5 hour drive.
  • This is a beautiful town and I recommend anyone interested in history to take some time out of their day and visit. There is very frequent activities hosted at Historic Washington. I attended the Shakespeare in the park and it was awesome! I will never miss another if I have my way. So stop by, take in the sites and maybe get a bite at the ol tavern.
  • Timetravel into the past just by stopping by. Many buildings restored or moved from elsewhere and reconstructed. Contra: Very few houses can be visited. The old school house is now a dormatory. Post office closed - would be splendid to send mail from there. Pro: Really Excellent tour at Hempstead Court House.
  • Authentic historic town. Williams Tavern has excellent food at reasonable prices in great historic atmosphere.
  • The civil war reenactment was so neat! The people who work in this town are very happy and friendly. So interesting to visit.
