Additional parking is available at the park picnic area. Picnic area parking requires a one half mile hike on trails through the woods to get to the Lemon House.
Self guided tours through the of the first floor plus the first floor exhibit room are available when the building is open. Park staff, as available, may greet visitors and guide you through the building.
