The Johnsonville Historic Area is beautiful and peaceful. I take my two sons there to play and run around. While my husband fishes, my sons play in the water, or we go hiking through the woods. It was my favorite place to visit growing up, and Im sure it will be my sons favorite as well! When they get a little older, theyll have to visit the musuem.
