We enjoyed our visit here. History lesson was awesome but beware, this place is hot in the summer. Be sure to dress in light clothing and brink plenty to drink, and please don't leave a pet in a vehicle in the hot parking lot!

This is a gem, hidden away! We spent over 2 hours going through this historical village - had a personal tour guide, Betty, who was very knowledgeable about the history of each building. Definitely worth your time!
