A blast from the past. All the hosts are so plesent and have so much knowledge. Would be a shame to miss this great attraction. WELL worth the low cost to travel back in time. All the Hosts truely..... more »
How fun to see the printing press, the blacksmith, and how things operated long before vehicles, computers and email! Music, interactions with the volunteers, and fun gift shop (think country store). more »
My kids and I went during the “Hands-On” event and really enjoyed ourselves. It wasn’t crowded at all given it was a hot Saturday afternoon. My kids (7 & 4) learned some history and the way of life 200 years ago. They did some arts and crafts as well. But at the end of the day, they were grateful for living in this century :).
I'm not a beer drinker, but I found myself loving the selection! The atmosphere is cozy and welcoming. Make time for this stop in your travels.
