The carriage ride was a ride into history. The carriage roads remain as they were in the 1920s. The driver was great. We took a private carriage with the 5 of us so less crowded than the usual 10 person ride.

It was a sunny day and near perfect for a wagon ride, a history, engineering, drams lesson and an appreciation for the foresight of people. They were right on time, loading the wagons after we watched the horses being hooked up to the wagons. The...More
