Wow, what at great visit and view into the past which got us to where we are today. Living the moment with the actors was wonderful. They made you feel you were back in the 1920's. Thanks again for the great visit. Open 10-5.

2nd visit after many years and enjoyed it again. Extensive grounds. Lovely historical building moved from other location. Great interpretors: go visit the newly weds! They're so very good you'd swear you're back in 1929. After that a real good wholesome Ukrainian meal!
