  • It has been some time now since the last time I was at John R Park Homestead. This time I was on a homeschool trip with my daughter-in-law and her two girls. They had never been and were quite interested in the history of the homestead, it's close proximity to Lake Erie and to get a glimpse of how people lived many years ago. The Homestead is well maintained. Kat, the tour guide at the center was knowledgeable, helpful and entertaining to the children. This day along with the tour since it was in the fall, the children learned how to make apple cider and peel and dry apples in front of the fireplace. The weather was great and it was a fun morning to be there with the group. I highly recommend you visit them during the upcoming Christmas season events.
  • Had a wonderful time showing my 4 year old grandson how things were. He was very inquisitive and loved roaming the grounds. Perfect day weather wise. Worth the reasonable cost to get the guided tour with full explanation of all the grounds and house.
