A very short walking area among buildings from the past. If you catch the right time of the year, you can got inside the buildings and they may have hosts to tell stories of the past times.

Been Geo caching and last visit was for daughters pictures. Great buildings, and neat History. Fall colors are spectacular. Make sure to head all the way to the back for a nice view of the lake and waterfall.

My son and my new daughter-in-law were married in the chapel at Mill Race Village. What a wonderful setting for such an event. Many photos were taken of the bridal party throughout the village.

We spent an hour exploring the village on Sunday. There are docents in each of the buildings on Sunday afternoons in the summer. It was interesting to learn the history of the buildings and the area. It is free to visit-donations are also accepted.
