You buy your tickets at the little gazebo near the church. They give you a booklet that gives some history as well as a map and some descriptions of each of the houses on the tour. There are several public buildings in the settlement as well. Most of them are open and have something on display for the tour. Each open house is marked with one of their signature Japanese lanterns and a number relating back to your map. It's all very well organized and you are free to do the homes in any order you like. Stop for a box lunch along the way...enjoy the chamber music played outside the museum.
See the Travelogues for the Quilt Exhibit and much more of the gingerbread architecture
Tickets $20 per person.
Note: If you are interested in these 1800's religious camp grounds which developed throughout the country, there is a book titled City In The Woods by Ellen Weiss, which details the religious and architectural history.
