  • Nice stop for an hour to enjoy a little bit of history. The log home is a replica but still an enjoyable exhibit.

  • Just driving by give me a real idea of what is was like living back in the "My Old Kentucky Home" days! It's kept clean as a pin! The entire area seemed so authentic and realistic to the era! I did not have the time to stop in, but just driving by I saw enough to KNOW this place is really worth the trip to visit!
  • Second trip here. Staff are extra nice and helpful. Son earned his Junior Ranger badge. The badges are metal...most all other sites/parks are plastic. My son was sick while trying to finish the badge and the staff went out of their way to be kind, understanding and helpful beyond their job description.
