  • Overview

    Our Tangen Home represents the dwelling of the family that owns the Implement Dealer in the 1876 town of Walnut Hill. A dinner here will give you a glimpse into the life of a middle-class family of the time, as well as a delicious home-cooked meal. You’ll eat in the Victorian-style dining room, then play period games in the parlor.
