The animatronic characters were a cool touch that brought the schoolhouse to life and made the school into more than a building.

The school is set up with animatronic characters which was okay, but I guess I expected a docent. Neat piece of history. Of course it was attached to a gift shop.

I don't know anything about paranormal investigations. If I posted something of that nature, it was merely intended to be restatement of something presented to me as a fact about a place. I prefer to live amongst the living.
