Take a walk back to a simpler time. In fact time seems to stop while visiting these quaint folks. These are not just historical relics, but actual entrepreneurs.

Lovely group of artisans, all happy to chat, lovely to see and buy. BUT the bonus is ramps to all the lovely historic buildings. Ate there too. Again accessible and lovely food and nice staff.

Most of the buildings in the Artisan Village are the actual historic buildings that were brought here from elsewhere, with some dating back to the 1700s. The artisans/craftsmen were friendly and informative and happy to explain or discuss their trades.

Stopped here before when it was closed and enjoyed walking around the outside of the buildings, this time the village was open. Free to the public, explore historic buildings with multiple floors of antiques and artifacts. Learn about the history of the structures.
