Self-Guided Tours New for 2019

We offer a self-guided tour map at the entrance to the grounds by the parking lot. Simply pick up a map and walk the grounds to take a tour at your own leisure at a time that fits your schedule. You will not have access to the inside the buildings, but don't let that stop you from letting the history come to life. If you're looking for something a little more involved come during one of our open dates. There is a picnic pavilion on site.
