Very neat place to visit and especially nice for the young ones. We have been there twice and once there were a group of children on a field trip.

This is a neat little place to visit for a few hours. Very interesting history and nice grounds to walk around on. Go on a nice fall day when it's cool and enjoy!

This was a very fun day and worth the visit for history buffs! Make sure to pay the extra $2/person to be able to go into the homestead and office. You cannot access those on the self-guided tour. Pro-tips: the my have a summer camp,...More

The park is very well kept; the grass is trimmed, the buildings were in great condition, and the area was very safe for all ages. The nature tail is a great walk through the beautiful East Tennessee mountains and is worth the time. The buildings...More
