For a "city-boy" this was a fascinating trip to view the farm equipment and get a much better appreciation of the tools, skills and hard work the farmers of past times had to endure to grow food. Worth your time, especially for the non-farm person.

The farm was set up nicely with the barns, home and displays. There were goats and chickens you could feed. While it was nice to see, if I would have been driving, I probably wouldn't have stopped.

A reasonable amount of exhibits but most were not well-labeled. Liked the goat, the fancy chickens and the early settler cottage though.

When we were there in July, the cabin where they lived was open. It is very small. If that's what you mean by 'the house", then the answer is yes.
