  • Spent an enjoyable our here. The park ranger was very knowledgeable and gave great talk. The lady in the gift store when you first walk in, she was also a park ranger, she was very friendly and welcoming. They waited until we had too large of a group though before starting the tour, and we went in some small spaces where we couldn't all fit very well or see what the park ranger was talking about all at once. beautiful setting on the river. Lots to see and explore. Recommend it. Plus it's free.
  • Beautiful property. Check the schedule or call ahead to confirm when the water wheels will be demonstrated. Great place to learn about the origins of the iron and steel trade in America. Takes about 1-2 hours to check out everything on the property. The rangers are great and always around to answer questions.
