This small village is a collection of historic buildings that have been moved to their current location from various places in the park. Each building comes from a different time period. During the summer, volunteers and park rangers dress up in costumes specific to each building's period and play a sort of living history, giving you a flavor of the past. There is also a collection of horse-drawn vehicles such as the Cannonball Stagecoach, an old covered bridge and a blacksmith working over a flame while pounding out iron as you watch. Visitors can even ride a horse-drawn stagecoach. There is not a fee to visit this attraction.
