Due to construction this season, the main floor of the limestone house will be used as the visitor contact station during summer months. In the past the barn has been used as the visitor contact station.
The main level of the barn is wheelchair accessible via built-in ramps. There is limited access to the barn during winter months. A photo album is available in the house showing the lower and upper levels of the barn. The lower level and main level of the barn is open for regular viewing during our summer and fall season, with limited viewing available during winter and spring.
