  • Took daughter & 2 middle kid-aged grands for the Strawberry Festival & plant sale. We looked through all the buildings + the sites inside main bldg. Lots of local history items. We all enjoyed it and had a different favorite part. Paid for shortcakes & plant starts to help with a fundraiser. Very clean, friendly volunteers, good family fun to review history!
  • First time going there. Much more then I expected. Definitely be going back
