About
Immerse yourself in a rich tapestry of American history while you enjoy the serenity of RV camping at this unique heritage site. With 15 historic buildings spread across lush grounds, this destination is a living chronicle of life from the 1840s through the 1970s. As you roam from the stately 1853 brick residence of a bygone era to a quaint one-room schoolhouse and a homely coal mining house, the echoes of history will inspire your imagination at each turn. Not just a home to the architectural past, this site houses an impressive museum with two floors brimming with local history exhibits. Engage with the storied past through a collection of traditional farm equipment, marvel at the hand-stitched heritage through an extensive quilt exhibit, and explore the aisles of a country general store that transports you to simpler times. Stand in awe beneath the historic Civil War flag that presided over the Battle of Vicksburg, and include a solemn visit to Iowa's only mule cemetery, an unexpected homage to hardworking mules of the past. Outdoors, a nature trail invites you to unwind along its path, and strategically placed picnic tables offer scenic spots for a reflective pause or a family meal amidst history. Culturists and RV campers alike will appreciate the seasonal festivities, such as the Annual Fall Festival, which brings the past to vibrant life every third Saturday of September. Forge lasting memories in this intersection of historical exploration and RV camping serenity, where every corner holds a story and every visit enriches your understanding of America's multifaceted heritage.
