  • A beautiful set of homes and buildings that have been restored to show the way the families lived there in the early to mid 20th century. Unfortunately unable to enter any of them due to Covid, but.....  more »
  • We literally ran into this area on our bike ride. So many structures to see. Have to go back with more time. The grounds are well kept and the old structures are restored and neat.  more »

  • Really nicely maintained and huge place to explore the history behind all those cute little houses. Amazed by the architecture and what each building was used for. If you have the time and willing to pay, join the tour to look at the inside of the main house because from the windows it's really hard to see the magnificence of the interior designs.
  • Kids had a blast. They offer some classes, my daughter did a cooking class for kids and loved it. Easy trails to walk around. Spots where you can get in the water.
