  • Great glimpse into history. Very inspiring tour and friendly guides. Life size one room cabin. Wish I had taken pics of it. Definitely worth the stop. Tours begin about every 30 mins during the summer.
  • Beautiful visitor center with many exhibits that are geared towards children. Our tour guide was knowledgeable and engaging, they used multimedias to teach about the 1800s in Missouri. I would definitely come again. The tour was free and 30 minutes long.
