  • The place is awesome. There is so much history there. It is so great to see old buildings restored and to be able to see how towns were once designed. There attention to detail is totally amazing.  more »
  • There is so much to see at Bonanzaville. I wish we could have spent more time here, but we were limited. There is a lot of history to see and read about. Don't miss the old cars and tractors, stop in....  more »
  • Very cool way to see history. The experience is 100 times better than reading from a text book.
  • This is the cutest quaint town. They did a murder mystery party and it was one of the most fun things I have ever done. I would come here again to tour the place and do more of their events. Everything was clean and taken care of and staff was amazing.
