After paying admission, visitors can pass through the gatehouse shop and enter the grounds. You begin your walk through a path surrounded by woods and nature. Hard to believe the hustle and bustle of modern-day is very close by, when walking to the farm area, you do feel as if you are transported back in time, rather than being just a few miles from the Beltway.
As you walk through the farm, you'll see living history staff dressed in period clothing going about their daily work (and they stay in character, speaking in first person about the farm, and are very happy to answer any questions).
|I'm not sure of the purpose of this building as it was closed off during the weekend I visited.|
