  • We came all the way from New Jersey and went to see this lovely park. The walk around the park was wonderful. it was extremely well kept and clean. One negative only was that we did not see any...  more »
  • Smaller than expected, but really a unique treat. There's lots of shade and the grounds are well maintained. The doors to the buildings were locked, so you may need to take a tour to see the insides. Handicap accessible walkways were a huge plus, but due to the historic nature of the facility, some areas are best traveled by foot. I strongly recommend watching the video at the visitor's center as this will help you understand and appreciate your surroundings.
  • Amazing experience here at the ranch. There is so much history packed into the tour! I think the free tour last 90 minutes. There is ALOT of walking so come prepared. The tour is the only way for you to get in and see the buildings. Its a good idea to bring a water. If you bring lunch be prepared for a bird to try to lunch with you. It's definitely a place you can take kids and the whole family. There's a beautiful white peacock running around too. I can't wait to go back and take more pictures. The gift shop is super cute. We bought a feather...its a small way to support the ranch. Everyone was friendly.
