Be present in the past as you explore this incredible, living site where costumed interpreters bring history to life in 25 original heritage buildings. Watch sparks fly as the blacksmith’s hammer hits the anvil, see the weaver’s nimble hands at the loom, smell the newly shaved wood in the wood turner’s shop, and then hear the thump of the printer’s manual press.
