  • The free Sunday was amazing! We did not anticipate a free visit, but it just happened. The interpretive displays and buildings were quite entertaining. We ended up spending about 4 hours there. I would go back! Worth your while.
  • This place is very rich in history. The group that came up with this idea are heroes for saving all of these old buildings. You really feel like you are in an old western town. And about 70% of the old building are air conditioned.
  • Really cool replica of what a Midwestern town looked like. Great for kids of all ages! Bring water during the summer months as it gets hot. A bit of walking is involved too.
  • Very family friendly and true to western times. The sasparilla was delicious and they have all kinds of buildings to enter to see historically accurate items.
  • Always a blast to go and hang out with the family, the actors are great and you really learn allot. The shows are amazing and the prices are more then fare for what you get.
