If you didn't know before, you will know about iron smelting from bog iron. Fascinating. A real insight into mid-19th century life.

Trip Advisor FUN!

I love the history of the physical environment. The old furnace remains are still available for view. Awesome.

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.

Trip Advisor 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.

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.
