Gregory Creek Homestead is our heritage site. We hold all our living history days at our cabins. We have 9 cabins gathered there: a one-story cabin, a two-story cabin, a livestock barn, a forge, a smokehouse, a corn crib, a mother-in-law's cabin, an open barn, and a schoolhouse. We hold living history once a month at the cabins from April - December. Please check our calendar for living history dates.
