  • We had a fantastic experience here. We were fortunate enough to get to blacksmith with Gene, George and Bob. We enjoyed the experience, their stories and their knowledge. We will never forget our experience with them. The historic village is lovely, with lots of history and plenty of photo opportunities. It is spaced out nicely so that you can easily make a loop without over extending little legs. The view from the cemetery hill looking down onto the train station is stunning. Everyone was very friendly and accommodating. We highly recommend a visit.
  • Experience days gone by with these actual buildings moved to the current location. Different events throughout history with persons playing the parts come to life making feel real.
