Visitors to this unique attraction will be transported to the 1920s as they stroll down the streets of the village exploring at their own pace. Period costumed townsfolk welcome visitors and give demonstrations in the homes, businesses and shops. Visitors can feel the heat of the forge in the Blacksmith Shop, hear the rhythm of the platen press at the Print Shop, and smell the coffee as its being ground in the General Store. A walk up the path to the Love Farmhouse is always rewarding. Visitors will discover what's growing in the gardens and maybe even churn some butter on the porch. A stop into the Tram Barn reveals a restored 1912 Interurban Tram; visitors are encouraged to take a seat and imagine a trip on the region’s early transportation system. Another treasure from 1912 is the C.W. Parker Carousel. Riders, of all ages, can experience the thrill of this vintage machine.
Amenities include picnic tables, a gift shop, and an ice-cream parlor which offers a menu for light meals and snacks. The site is wheelchair accessible.
