Explore over 300 Years of History with Modern Amenities. The history of a town tells the story of its people and its beginnings. By the architecture one can guess when it was built and how its people lived at that time. But there is certainly an underlying story which may not be immediately evident. What of its people who's initial homes may have been log cabins which have not survived the ages. Lands that are now dotted with modern homes were once fields that bore life sustaining crops and pastures where cattle and horses used for heavy farm work and transportation grazed peacefully. Neighborhoods have replaced self-sustaining homesteads.
