A pioneer 1840’s log home featured in many national magazines can be toured, along with 35 reconstructed Missouri log cabins, circa 1800-1890, all rescued from demise through the state.

Take a stroll through the Eric Sloane covered bridge and enjoy candle-dipping, soap-making, weaving, woodworking, Klopolei, Scherenschnitte and much more. Visitors can interact with more than 80 historic juried artisans and demonstrators-leaving them with a truly educational and family-oriented day. Traditional German meals will tempt the palette while period music wafts through the Missouri valley.
