  • A hidden gem locals will benefit from as much as tourists! Our tour guide, Doug, was knowledgeable, passionate, and his personal local history added to the experience. There's so much to see you could to do this tour several times and continue to learn something new. They also have a rotation of exhibits which makes it new every time. Will definitely return for new exhibits and this rare exposure into the past. (Thank you to the Hunter family and those that have maintained not only their history, but that of the time they lived.) Highly recommend!
  • So beautiful and love that era. The Tea and treats fabulous. The entertainment was great. We had a great time.
