  • Amazing tour guide Mr. Smith was so friendly & an encyclopedia of history & interesting stories! Would love to go back just to talk & visit with him. A first time for our family of 3 ❤ Country Store located right around the corner with everything from homemade jam to bread, fresh vegetables & a gorgeous greenhouse full of flowers & plants.
  • They are very polite. May not be everyone's cup of tea. Very peaceful. Nice place to stop and learn some of our country's history.
