Visit the farm house of 1889, log cabins of 1830’s; Experience the Civil War Encampments; Make your Christmas purchases at the 1876 Mercantile, post your letters to St. Nicholas at the Post Office; visit the serene setting of the 1884 Church; at the Arnold Home see how Swedish immigrants of the 1880s celebrated Santa Lucia Day and watch how lace was made. Warm up by the ‘potbellied’ stove in the school, visit the Doctor’s office and then a visit with St. Nicholas in the family home decorated in high Victorian style. At the end of your visit, you may want to ride the horse drawn sleigh for a brief ride through the countryside!
