This park allows visitors to experience what life was like in the Minnesota River Valley 150 years ago. Interpreters in costumes and building replicas help recreate late 19th-century life, a time when settlers were establishing farmsteads and villages on the frontier. The 88-acre park is open for tours and hosts educational events, groups and weddings. Original features include Major Murphy's inn and ferry crossing, the Pond Grist Mill and a river overlook wall constructed by the Works Progress Administration. This historic site was formerly known as Murphy's Landing.
