No one there but us the day we went. It is a nice shady area to walk. You can look in all of the historic looking buildings. It was a bit buggy in spots, so be prepared for that. I suggest walking shoes or at...More

All the buildings are open for you to look into and see what people of that era used. Great place to walk when it's hot as it is shady.

This is a neat little self guided tour. Lots of historical items to view. Some of the area is not easily accessible if you have difficulty walking. Still lots of areas that are.

I have mixed feelings about Heritage Canyon. On the one hand, the transplanted 1800's village buildings are full of interesting objects from a time gone by. There are several to see, and they give visitors a peek into how people used to live and function...More
