I have been to Ushers Ferry several times- once with a school field trip and on an overnight with the girl scouts. Also I have attended some of special events. It is like taking a step back in time.

The tour guides wear old fashioned clothing. It is like a prairie village with a church, general store, saloon, and schoolhouse. There are more buildings also. It is a village before electricity or indoor plumbing.

The special events are the most fun. My children enjoyed the train day. They rode a train and made a craft at the schoolhouse. Lots of fun for everyone!

This is a neat local place to take the family. The kids really enjoyed going through the buildings that were open and seeing how life was before electricity. They loved shopping in the general store as well. Be ready to walk and spend time outside so I suggest picking a nice day out.

Ushers Ferry Historic Village is a neat place to visit. You want to be sure and go with there is something going on there. There are thirty buildings in this village set in 1903. This is before indoor plumbing and electricity. The general store does have trinkets you can purchase. We bought a wooden flute and a patch that says Ushers Ferry. Its fun to see what life was like during this time period. They have people who are dressed in the periods clothing too.
