Located on its original site, the house is furnished much as it was when homesteaders lived here. Audio and video presentations provide insight into life during this period. Pioneer clothing is available for visitors to wear while touring the homestead. Farm animals and rare white prairie dogs are on the grounds. Time: Allow 30 minutes minimum.
