Took a group of 13 kids ages 5 to 10. Very interesting, loved our tour guide. The kids really enjoyed the fun games, making rope and trying to rope a cow!! Definitely will go back!

This park was used to host a family campout for families in Polk County. There were many historical items that helped make the campout interesting, & educational. It's also nice just to visit to look at the historical village.

Visited this area for a friend's wedding location. Gorgeous grounds, very well kept. Bathrooms available as well. Very nice historic buildings to check out. Looked like a nice place to bring the family for a day out exploring.

This little preserved piece of history is great. It is worth stopping by. It feels as though you have stepped back into history.
