The tour was not quite as good as I had remembered from school, but still interesting. It seems that back then there were more demonstrations of how things had been done in that time period. The architecture was amazing, it looked like some of the building walls were 5 inches thick, and some of the boards used for flooring were 14 or more inches wide. The buildings were built to stand for 100's of years. Every one working here was friendly and very knowledgeable about the area they worked in. There was a huge disappointment, back years ago they actually cooked the cookies and cakes on site. You could go into the bakery and watch them cook in the old stone ovens. Not anymore! Now they have an off site bakery and the baked goods are brought in, and you can tell by the taste and lack of freshness. Other than the sugar cookies, don't waste your money.
