Chestnut Square is a collection of seven houses and other structures dating back to the 1850s. The buildings are the Taylor House, Dulaney Cottage, Johnson House, the Chapel, Dixie's Store, the Faires House and Schoolroom - (I'll try to put pictures of them each in a travelogues sometime.) The buildings are furnished as they would have been in the 1800's and early 1900's. Tours begin at the visitors center on Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Saturdays at 11a.m.
