Great little step back in time. Really awesome that they are able to keep up and maintain all these old building and tools. Must attend Pioneer Days if you're in the area when that is happening!

Parker Pioneer Homestead is only open a short time each year. We have gone several times and went during the month of October. It is set up like a town would have looked back in the 1800's. They grind corn on a grist mill operated...More

Come hungry because you will do some "samplin" and bring money to buy some of those samples. The price to get in and see all the old buildings--post office really cool!--and how to make a broom, grind corn, etc is not bad but you will...More

In October every year they have a great festival. Lots of fun for the family. Listen to live music while you eat great food and walk in all the log buildings. A great trip back in time to see how people lived.

Our son and daughter-in-law had their wedding here. It was a very nice place to have a rustic outdoor wedding.

We went to Parker Pioneer Homestead to experience the Haunted Forest. It was much more than I had expected. It reminded me of Pumpkin Hollow when it was just a couple of years old. The spooks are good but not too bad for smaller children....More
