Come spend the day!
Bring the whole family and make a day of it at Historic Village. Take a walk through the park and visit several of our historical members who thrive to bring the memories back to you from the old years. Bring a lawn chair, bring the kids and enjoy our heritage gardens while the kids have fun exploring all the historic age and perhaps discovering a few surprises along the way.
