There are some interesting sites on the complex including a few old cars in the barn and a building for weaving. Engines and old farm equipment are scattered about and don't seem well kept. There is also just lots of junk clutter. The Summergrass bluegrass festival here each August is worth attending. There are a few shaded areas, but should... 更多
Visited recently for Fathers Day. Got to ride in 0ld Julian "stage coach car" in parade. Lots of old kitchen tools. Weaving, spinning, gem & mineral exhibits, new clock exhibit, textiles, tractors, antique cars & other farm machinery. Can be very hot & dusty. See Facebook page. I have been various times, I always enjoy.

Although our preschooler loves trains and... 更多
Fun place to take family and kids. Watch blacksmiths perform there trade. Railroad museum in back. Volunteers explain train sets. Every year they have a parade and music festival.
There is a LOT to see here - this museum is spread out over a lot of ground. Tractors, old cars, steam engine row, gas engine row, a Grist Mill, an small train you can ride in, wagon rides. Food available in the food court too.
I have been going to the steam engine museum for over 30 years. I haven't been there since 2012. I was shocked about paying a "Parking" Fee $5.00. Supposed to be a donation, (No Receipt given) For admission they only take cash $9.50ea.! (Again No receipt given). I was really upset over this. I will never go back there again.... 更多
