Staff is fantastic, great bunch of volunteers, best week to visit is "fair week" because they have different trolleys running every day but it is a must see regardless of when you are in the area if you like things from the past!

There is no where else you can go and see the variety of trolleys these people have assembled. First rate. You can get a nice ride on an old trolley through the woods and to the main barn where there are about 40 old trolleys....More
