This was a neat little experience. There are old and new pieces of farm equipment spread throughout the grounds. There is a short walking trail through a wooded area that has different trees and plants marked. There is also a small, mock-up, old time town that has a church, two room school house, general store, gas station, cotton gin, saw mill, print shop, several small log cabins along with a few other structures. You can walk through and see show life was during a simpler time. There is also a great little museum with several nice pieces and information. We really enjoyed this attraction.
Beautiful state capitol building. Lovely grounds with plenty of parking. A must see when in Jackson.
