      This little collection of restored and reconstructed buildings from the Nineteenth and early Twentieth Centuries is worth detouring off the beaten track to see. There is an extensive and impressive array of period farm implements on the grounds, and the buildings are decked out with period furniture and collectibles, some of which can be viewed through the windows even when the buildings are not open. On certain weekends, there are open houses, featuring costumed interpreters, food and crafts. The Christmas open house is especially festive.

      If you go:
      Free admission. Grounds open daily, but buildings are open only on summer weekends and open house occasions. Call ahead to verify schedule.
