Carriage Hill MetroPark Professional Guide
Detailed Trail Description from our Guidebook
"Two things really stand out about Carriage Hill MetroPark. One is its historic farm. The Daniel Arnold Family originally settled this area in 1830. The farm that remains is meant to replicate the life they would have known. There’s an original log house, blacksmith and engine shops, an icehouse, poultry house, log barn, sawmill, and more. Farm animals like those the Arnolds would have raised and volunteers dressed in period clothes doing farm chores like baking bread complete the scene. A visitor center has exhibits, an interactive children’s center and gift shop, while the Carriage Hill Gallery has rotating agricultural photographic and art displays. Carriage Hill’s other unique feature is its horseback riding center. This stable caters to people of all experience levels."
