We will be closed on January 18th for the Holiday.

appointment time.When it is time, please proceed to the Wiggins Store (brick building).
If your appointment begins at 9:30am, you will be asked to wait in your car until 9:30am. If your appointment ends at 11:30am, you should be making your way back to your car and exiting the property by 11:30am.
This is so that we can clean the buildings if we are prepping for a meeting, event, or for maintenance.
You may arrive anytime between the set appointment time (for example, if your appointment time is 9:30am - 11:30am, you may arrive at 10am). Just know that the end time is when you should be leaving, so make sure you have enough time to visit the structures you want to visit!
