You are met at the front door by a costumed interpreter who offers you an Ipad for your tour. If there are two staff on site then you can choose to have a group tour. The Ipad program brings the place alive with its stories...More

The house is beautifully preserved and the voices and photos bring it to life on the tablet. I don't think I ever could have survived going to the brook to get water at 30 below every day in the winter!

Preserved house from the 1700's. Although I found the visit kind of boring (you take a tablet and watch 27 short videos related to each room of the house), it was interesting to imagine life at that period.

Wonderful surprise to see so much history well preserved in this small country house. The descriptions on the portable computer pads make the visit easy to understand and learn from. All history buffs should make this at least a one hour stop.
