About the Program

Heritage Park invites you to step back in time and spend the night in the historic Burns Barn! In the evening, let our Educational Interpreters guide your group through several hands-on and engaging activities, like making ice cream the old-fashioned way! When it’s time for bed, your group will “hit the hay” in one of our twenty-two bunks.
