  • It was nice experience because they have nice garden where you can have a pick Nick. They do not have a priest in church but the staff are very nice. You can enter fir free the only thing you pay is parking 6 dollars. You can see animals there in their farm.
  • Beautiful property with hiking trails. You get a real sense of how life must of been. Buildings have many rooms to explore with of furnishings and artifacts. Blacksmith shop. Water fountain and livestock. Allow 2 hours more for hiking trails.
