Trip to Horne Creek Farm

Horne Creek Farm

This is one of the most fun historical sites we have ever visited.   It is a living history farm that was in operation around 1900.  Nothing that appears in history books happened here.  There were no very famous visitors.  Why do we love this place?  You can touch almost everything and nothing is roped off.  We spent the entire day there and played farm.  The Crafter made out a chore list for the whole family except for Princess Pink.  She was visiting Grandma.

    That would be an awesome place to visit. It's always much more fun to learn history hands-on than from a boring textbook.
