Take a Wagon Ride

The simple joy and pleasure of taking a ride in a wagon drawn by horses is as evident today as it was back in the 19th century.

Visitors can hop aboard our horse-drawn carry-all ride for a leisurely ride. It departs from Cook's Tavern along Village streets, making a brief stop at the Tenant Farm.

The horse driver will point out items of interest along the way; be prepared to return friendly greetings from villagers as they notice your passing.

Included in Village admission.

Please be sure to check at admissions to verify departure times on the day you visit.

Journey the Village Canal

Journey along the Village canal on our horse drawn tow scow! The tow scow can seat approximately 60 people and travels back and forth along the canal from the dock behind Cook's Tavern to the Tenant Farm in the heart of the village.

The tow scow is a flat hulled barge that is drawn along the canal by a horse walking along the bank. Two villagers (one at the bow, and one at the stern) help steer the scow using long poles. In typical village life, the scow would be used to transport heavy goods to mills and other distant locations.

Included in Village admission.
