This place seems like a nice collection of historic buildings, and it kind of is. However... the blacksmith shop was bristling with activity, and although we have seen many blacksmiths in action, it's always kind of fascinating, so we watched. Next was a trip across the street to the mill, which was closed. It's run by volunteers, but the person for the mill was not able to open up. So we wandered to the Miller's house behind it, and talked about muskets with a volunteer there. My 6-year-old granddaughter was not terribly impressed, and was getting a bit impatient, so we took off for two other things, which both turned out to be fun.
First, we walked down to the Gunpowder River which runs right next to the mill (as rivers tend to do), and walked along the shore, across a footbridge, and across some rocks. She loved the exploration. The next stop was the mill's general store a couple hundred yards away. Much more activity here, and there was a scavenger hunt for the kids, which turned out to be fun for her. It was a nice stop and a pleasant visit.
