I went with a group of about 25 middle school students. We had a lot of fun learning about the history and animals. The kids had fun participating in some of the chores! Bring water with you!

For romantic historians which I am it’s fun but not extraordinary. Worth a visit and not overpriced makes it a worthwhile stop easily accessible to highway 10 both directions. Feels like your back in civil war era or little house in prairie. Wish their were...More
