Music Venue
“We had no idea this attraction was available. It is next to a small art galley, the Agnes James Gallery (well worth visiting) and it was definitely worth seeing. – an excellent re-creation – the sample buildings were originals moved to this collective site. The cabin, a government standard for settlers of the time, was surprisingly well designed and constructed. We’re glad we had this opportunity to visit.”
