The Ledges provides a boulder-strewn cliff to relax and watch the sunset over the wooded scenery below, and the park offers an array of preserved and restored displays of 19th and early 20th century sustainable farming and pastoral or rural living, while catering to contemporary interests with art exhibits, outdoor concerts, and scenic excursion and special event railroad tours.
