The village features many historic buildings
which have been relocated from the surrounding area. Attractions include an Octagon House which can be traced back to
1867 and a School House that was last used in 1948 and still has
many of its original furnishings. The onsite Chapel was once an
Evangelical United Brethren Church and can currently be booked
for weddings. There is also a Log Cabin that dates back to
approximately 1850 that was built by a family from Ireland.
New London's main
train depot was also moved into the village. It is reminiscent
of the days when the Chicago and North Western served the city
with passenger service. Two Cabooses and a 300 horsepower Diesel
Locomotive are also on display.
