Went here on a Sunday afternoon to kill time with my two boys. They hadn't been here before and they liked it more than I thought they would. The home is mostly restored with very little of it original. It's all set up to be...More

I love peeking around in old houses discovering old ways, but this is just an opportunity to sell you on joining the Mormon church, you are preached to from the moment you walk through the door until you finally escape.
