The Weir Farm National Historic Site is a great place to take one's family. Not only would people learn about a great artist, but there is an opportunity to hike and enjoy the environment.

I don't know that this site is particularly enchanting. It is located out in the country. The workshop building is next to the woods. The garden is okay. The outside of the house is photogenic. The colors of the leaves are not particularly happening.

Beautiful vistas in the fall and lots of choices for walking paths. Nice because dogs are allowed on leash.

Tucked out of the way, this place is a little treasure. For anyone with artistic interests and seeking creative inspiration it's worth a visit. We called in the Visitor Centre and wandered in the gardens on a hot morning - which was very peaceful.

Most of the trails are very easy walking, though not paved. Mostly level and there are several walking "hikes" from which to choose.
