  • Great stop with the kids! Get the scavenger hunt from the visitors center. Made the kids even more engaged! Loved stepping back in time and learning!

  • We went around 10am. This is a walk-thru at your own pace exhibit. Greatly preserved from over 100 years ago. We also saw elk which was a bonus.

  • Since it was a beautiful, fresh, but sunny January day, this was a quick and pleasant outdoor activity. ( I have been there before--- the summer--- and it can be very busy.) On this visit, one if the Rangers showed us how they were using traditional techniques to split wood, take the bark off, let them air dry, and prepare them for fencing around the main house. He took the time to pleasantly and patiently answer our questions. There are many interesting out buildings with signage and explanations. Because it is outside, it is such a perfect place to take children. They can wander around, touch things, and learn about our history. The adults can follow suit or readily find benches tucked among the trees and next to the paths and river. The setting is open, inviting, and peaceful. There are clean restrooms next to the welcome center and parking lot. There is also a small museum and nice gift shop inside the welcome center. They have a good variety of gifts/ souvenirs. I especially like their selection of books about local history, hiking, herbal medicines, flora/ fauna, cookbooks, local arts and crafts, and on. If you or your children participate in the amazing National Parks Junior Ranger Program, they have a good selection of materials. The Rangers were all very cheerful, helpful, and welcoming. This is an excellent stop for people of all ages. It is free but , if you would like, you can certainly donate to the park.
