- When you've been sitting all day driving it's nice to get out to walk.
- It's neat to see this Little House on the Prairie type town.
- There's a lot to see.
- They have Civil War reenactment event in October.
- You can get married there.
- It's open everyday of the year from sun up to sun down.
- There are walking trails to see bison.
- It's free!
- If you don't like to walk, or walking is hard for you than this isn't the place for you. There are hills to climb.
- There are things to see in the buildings, through the windows, but it's hard to take photos inside there. You capture a reflection of yourself, and that's about it.
- There's only porta potties.
- The Blacksmith Shop was just a shed. Nothing to see there.
Isaak has been hacking and spitting. I said, "What are you doing?" He said, "I"m trying to spit like Grandpa." I knew exactly what he was trying to do. I grew up with the man.
I was walking along holding Isaak's hand. A big bug flew fast into my mouth, and lodged it's self in the back of my throat. I tried to hack like Grandpa - my Dad. It was just too late! It had to be the most uncomfortable gross thing to have a bug stuck in my throat! Travis wouldn't go back to the car, so I could get water. I got extra protein that day. Positive things: It wasn't a poisonous bug, and I got more protein. Negative thing: Gross!
Now...on with the museum. After I swallowed a lot. The museum was wonderful.
They had a lot of outdoor farming equipment here and there.
The boys enjoyed feeding the chickens. I wish we could have some. Stupid city ordinance.
This was by far my husband and my favorite building:
A few little structures:
The boys didn't want me to take photos of them. They wanted to be on the go.
A door on the inside wall:
The Mt. Ararat Baptist Church with a Cemetery in the back:
I still wonder how and why we lost mercantile in our store's names today?
I really liked this self guided tour!
