This restored historical village does a good job of recreating life in the Ohio Valley in days gone by, however, it suffers from a lack of interactive activities. Most of what could be done here was just looking at the houses, which was a bit disappointing. The blacksmith and glassblower were working on their crafts, but the candlemaker and the... 更多
Hale Homestead has been in my life over the past 40 years. In the 1970's I lived in the farmhouse next to the cemetery after the owner died. He was buried next door in the family cemetery. My dogs would sit on the property line of the graveside and bark and howl, but they would never cross into the cemetery.... 更多
We had friends in and it was a GORGEOUS day here in Northeast Ohio. My husband and I have never been to Hale Farm and for a bonus, they were having a craft show.

We ate kettle corn, home made ice-cream and a few other treats as we spent one of the last summer festivals of the year. Some craft and market veggies... 更多

My family and I visited the farm and it was not very handicapped friendly very spread out for a person walking with a cane or walker no paved paths not even to the restrooms and not many benches to rest on and enjoy the outdoors, very disappointed with spending the money to visit.
We enjoyed the drive through the Cuyahoga Forest to get to this living museum of a what a village would be like during the Civil War time. The homes, general store, school house, blacksmith, church, gardens, livestock buildings, etc. were placed in a way to give you a sense of a village that reminded me of an English farm village... 更多
Lots of walking through rocky unpaved paths or grass. They show you how they lived in the 1800's decade. Tour s school, weaving, spinning, blacksmith, candle making, general store, Doctor, church, meeting house etc. no air conditioning except for main building with the cafe and gift shop. The workers dress up in costumes. Excellent place to visit if you like... 更多
