This place is really fun to go on a Sunday afternoon. You can eat a buffet lunch and go listen to dancing music. You can also walk around the grounds. On occasional weekends they have limited kayak trips too.

Numerous historical buildings showing different ways of life depending on the times or economics, of various people living in Vermilionville. Also some displays on water and weather. This little village sits right on the water and has a nice restaurant.

The amount of detail that went into restoring the old houses and out buildings is impressive. The staff, dressed in clothing appropriate for the period represented, who man the buildings provide a surprising amount of information. Well worth the price of admission. We were there...More
