The site is laid out to replicate a small rural settlement and includes several farmsteads, a grist mill, a tavern, a general store, a school and a pioneer chapel among other buildings. The Village is noted for its special events which often involve demonstrations of traditional skills like horse shoeing, soap making or haying. The Village is open to the public from June to the end of August and then on a limited basis until early October.
