  • Such a beautiful place. The facility was not open the day we visited, but just seeing the grounds was worth the stop. The building and the setting are amazingly beautiful. It's a short distance...

  • Beautiful duck pond is perfect for a break in road trip. A couple of picnic tables are available. Although the main building is closed for winter, we enjoyed having a nice picnic. Restroom is clean!
  • We visited the grounds. It was closed so we couldn’t go inside the hatchery. It was a nice stop to walk around and enjoy the views. The building was beautiful. We also enjoyed feeding the ducks. There’s a food machine for a quarter you can get a handful to feed the ducks.
