OUR MOST POPULAR TOUR
In this guided tour costumed interpreters will walk students through our 1836 village stopping along the way in the Visitor’s Center, Chapel/Schoolhouse, Blacksmith Shop, Carpentry Shop, Manager’s House, and General Store. While traveling from building to building they will also draw your attention to various other points of interest. This tour will highlight what daily life was like in the year 1836, giving students a chance to see craftsmen practicing their trade and learn about occupations of the past, get a glimpse of a 19th century school day, and see how the lives of everyday people in the early 19th century differ from the lives we lead today.
