This is the second time I have stopped here. There are nice churches to shoot, a barn or two and lots of rusted farm machinery and a few vintage cars. Best time to shoot is early morning or late in the day.

The Park Manager was very friendly and engaging as he gave an off the cuff history lesson and answered many questions. He was extremely knowledgable and he strongly showed how much he enjoys the work at this park and his pride.
