HERITAGE CABIN: 

Our little cabin in the Ag Zone will give you a feel for the rudimentary conditions that pioneers endured to settle the west. It was a time of hard work, but women found time to use their skills and creative ability to handcraft quilts, weave cloth, spin wool, crochet or make toys. Relive these experiences and see firsthand how these tasks were performed. Stop by the Heritage Cabin located in Country Trail.
