The little Red School House. I've gone there since i was a kid. Somer really enjoys it. There is a little red school ( hence the name) and inside there are reptiles, texidermy animals, pelts, history, pictures, and games. Theres this log with holes in it that the kids stick their hand in and try to guess what is inside. There are things like fur, snake skin, turtle shell, pinecone, ect that the kids touch. There is also a nice large trail to walk. almost every visit we see deer, strange birds, squirrels, chipmunks, snakes, tree frogs, ect. Heres alink and a pic.
