Over the years we have visited settlers village many times. It never gets old and it is a wonderful piece of history and celebrations mixed into one. I totally recommend this as a family activity. Lots to see and learn from.

Love their halloween haunted haunt. They scare all ages, its amazing to see the whole town come out and support the food bank. Everyone should come out at least once to experience this.

I love pioneer times.....I took my children (ages 13, 9) and they really enjoyed their visit through all the buildings. My autistic son especially liked the scavenger hunt to keep him searching for items throughout the village. Great idea!
