All Burned Out

I have visited this place twice. Both times they had never had anyone dressed in period attire doing work. It is hard to experience the living history when you do not have people walking around. It is nice to see the historic buildings and the old furnace. It would be a great place if there were actual people to see other than the cashier.
very interesting, beautiful

wonderful cypress forest trail. Replica and restored early 1800's village very interesting. Check out the garden, and if you are lucky, the gardener will be there to tell you about his crops. It was fun to watch a few craft people and local painters at work.
Grandkids loved it!

Well worth the few dollars to visit. best in school months. Watch the blacksmith at work, a weaver, a broom maker, and others! CUTE gift shop with LOW priced items. I brought home a handmade broom for under $15.00 Nice way to teach our kids about our countries' past. CLEAN restrooms and picnic tables for a bring from your home lunch.

A recreation of the company town that sprang up in the 1800's producing iron. They have Artisans on site at different times/days, we got there rather early and there was only the gardener, who was a very nice elderly gentleman and was great with the children. All of the buildings were open and children were able to handle some things. We had the place to ourselves and enjoyed it, but recommend visiting when they have events/festivals and most of the Artisans are on duty.
