Found this gem on-line and glad we did! A charming little stroll into the past. Small but meticulously presented look into life 200 years ago. Very friendly staff, farm animals, blacksmith lessons and unique artifacts. A perfect activity for non-beach days!

I love American history and thoroughly enjoyed my visit. With my AAA discount we only paid $10 each for the adults, and I considered it a bargain for how much we learned. The buildings are 'self guided' but knowledgeable caretakers are on hand to answer...More

$12/person is too expensive. Nice property but not much to do. Maybe 5-6 "houses" to go through, (1) was locked Self guided which is nice.
