There are four historic structures here: the adobe which is on its original site, an old home, an old school and an old church. All are interesting, but you have to be on a tour to see inside the old home. Site is accessed by parking in a lot associated with the neighboring shopping center. Well worth a visit when... More

Have been several times, different times and days of week. Nice place to walk through, gather thoughts, meditate. Have been for the Halloween event; very well put together. Victorian Christmas is relaxing and peaceful.

A short walk leads to a school house depicting early turn of the century education with appropriate furnishings. There are several events held at the park during the year.... More

This park has several buildings, home and a church that were relocated from various locations in the area to thus park. The docents and park put on several programs throughout the year including June Halloween, thanksgiving and Christmas. Have been in the area for over 30 years and always a treat to drop in. Great for young families and grandkids!!!

This little gem is tucked away near a shopping center. If you didn't know it was there you would miss it. I attended a wedding there and it was just beautiful.

When you enter its like stepping back in time. This is a well maintained park atmosphere that includes many historical buildings and farming equipment. Each building or piece has a place card that gives relevant information and social application. This park incorporates different levels and offers different views . I was truly surprised such a gem existed in my neighborhood... More
