Glad we went. Not crowded at all. Some interesting things about the Civil War and the Black Seminoles that I'd never heard of.

This is a nice historic site for a quick visit. Been a while since I have seen the exhibits offered. The grounds are lovely and it sits in the Quapaw Historic District. Lots of lovely homes in the area to see.
