  • Great, unique spot. Lots & lots of walking. The bus doesn't go everywhere. People with disabilities will face challenges. Nothing ADA about the olden days, or the olden buildings. Plan ahead to face this reality. Five stars overall, except for the limited access to some key areas, plus overall poor signage.
  • Excellent part of early American history, there seems to be something of interest here for any mind set. Being a 30 + year machinist I obviously loved the machine shop and the evolution of the machinery.
