The home is very authentic and staffed by some very friendly guides. The barn is huge and displays some authentic posters. The grounds are landscaped nicely and are very pleasant to walk around in.

Yes, you do. $6.00 a day for NE residents, $8.00 a day for non residents. Your National Park Pass is for National Parks, not state parks.
