We really enjoyed ourselves. It as nice to see how common colonials lived as Williamburg and Mount Vernon only show how aristocrats lived. Its way different. However this site needs more funding. Things that were on the map, like the hoofed animals were missing and...More

It was a friends recommendation which brought us here. Very nice, interesting and educational farm. We had a very nice visit. Ample parking available, picnic tables. Be careful, the GPS sends you to a private community.
