"The Pioneer Village experience was absolutely amazing! We brought our homeschool group here and had an incredible time. The volunteers really care about what they’re doing and what they’re teaching and engage the children in such a way that they were a part of the experience. They make each station interesting for the children and very interactive. We literally felt like we stepped back in time and got to experience life like the pioneers did! There were so many questions our children had, there was so much learning that they experienced and being around everything in a hands-on environment made it very unique and special. We will definitely be back. Thank you so much for the opportunity and your service to the community!" - Tara Manna-Beatty
