  • This place is beautiful. Peaceful and serene. A great place for family gatherings of most any kind. The grounds are impeccably clean. Rest room facilities are nearby all sights. It would behoove any passerby to take the time to stop and see for themselves.
  • A must see if you're in the area. It is a good place to bring the family to have a good time. Good for children of all ages and they try to have it a living history museum so you can at least have an idea of how it was in the 1800's.
