“Family Fun”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 May 2013

This provides a look back into the history of our area. A wonderful place to take young kids to learn about the life of their great grandparents and grandparents. My own children grew up enjoying the Festival. Some of the best times. Memories to last a life time.

Went out during their Octagon Barn days. Many merchants selling interesting crafts. Horse rides and many displays. Was quite enjoyable.

“Interesting building”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 November 2012

The volunteers have done a great job redoing the barn. You will not see another barn like this anywhere. Worth the trip to visit it.
