  • It is a beautiful place for a long and very slow walk, which is all I can do these days. It is also scooter friendly most of the time. The Grandkids enjoyed the old military vehicles and...  more »
  • As someone who has done decent traveling , seen a lot of museums, this one is awesome. I've been to Gettysburg been to a few museums out that way and I loved the Civil war stuff this place had. The museum does thorough job of educating its patrons of Rockford's history. Neat exhibits and friendly staff. Even the lobby is pretty cool. My fiance and I went. It's a place you can totally bring your kids or parents to. Fun for the whole family! My absolute favorite part was the actual village museum. We didn't take any tours of the buildings other than the house by the barn and the police station. We look forward to going back for sure Hopefully we can have our wedding there. If you're into History this place is right up your alley. It's got exhibits for just about everyone or any interest.
  • It's been quite awhile since I've been here. My parents donated a beautiful old piano back in the late '70's. We were all out there to see it on display in 1980. I was back today for a wedding. It is a beautiful spot for weddings. I will be back again soon. Hopefully for another Wedding 👍
