This attraction would have the potential -for its antiquity, history and location- to shine. Instead,when not hosting some fair or show, the place is remarkably dull, unadorned and poorly manned.

Also on the property are President Grover Cleveland's Gray Gables Railroad Station and a windmill displaying local artists' works. Its located along the Cape Cod Canal so also a great... 更多
