Housed within the grounds is a house, railway station, barbershop, blacksmith shop, school, community hall, and store along with the Rt. Hon. Edward Schreyer's homestead and barn. Our events during the summer attract many to view our displays and demonstration of early agriculture processes. Most of the pioneers of this region were Polish, Ukrainian, or German descent coming from the areas known as Galicia and Volhynia. These pioneers had to face many hardships in carving out the wilderness and learning to adapt to a new way of life. Many artifacts depicting the lifestyle of the early pioneers of the surrounding area are located in these buildings.
