The state has done a nice job of preserving Brown's farm and of interpreting his life to put it into the historical context of the mid 1800s. The young man who was the docent was very knowledgable and provided a good overview of Brown's life and his historic significance.
This is our second visit here... The first was a decade ago. Now the site has been a bit more developed with two excellent exhibits in the barn.
