  • We stopped by and it was closed. The parking lot gates were open for a meeting, so we wandered in not knowing it was closed. Dan was a wonderful host and gave us a quick run through and let us walk the grounds. THANK YOU!!! ✌
  • This place is amazing. There is so much to see and do! I would plan on giving yourself several hours to see it all. This place is steeped in history and is a super fun way to experience said history. My four kids love coming here and we make sure to at least once every year. The festivals are especially fun.
