Relics of the 19th and early 20th centuries, these buildings include one-room schoolhouses where children gathered for lessons, as well as a tavern their parents might have frequented. Ticketed tours permit peeks into some of Montgomery's historic cottages, while visitors on self-guided excursions can interact with costumed interpreters on the village's every block. Guests can even take home history from Rescued Relics, the museum's salvage warehouse full of old-timey architectural pieces, including mantels and doors.

Richland Golf Center summons clubbers of all stripes with its sprawling, multifaceted swing-honing facility and a staff of ace instructors. Revolving around a central pond, the nine-hole executive course helps players master their approaches with seven par 3s and two par 4s that ensure drivers won't start questioning their self-worth. Clients can groom their game in pressure-free sessions at the 40 all-grass hitting stalls of the driving range, at the 2-acre short-game area, or by enrolling in one many golf lesson options.

The center also encompasses an 18-hole mini-golf course, which eschews gimmicky clowns and windmills in favor of a calming layout with misting fountains and obstacles such as water hazards, bunkers, and out-of-bounds areas. Clients can pair renovated swings with brand-new clubs in the pro shop, which peddles gear from brands such as TaylorMade, Srixon, Cleveland, or enlist the center's experts to regrip their current clubs or replace driver shafts snapped during sand-trap pole-vaulting competitions.

Farley’s Ballroom fills with the rhythmic rush of fluttering feet during weekly group dance lessons and private instruction sessions. During six-week beginner courses, dancers can fly solo or flock together in group lessons for individuals or couples on Mondays from 7 p.m. to 7:50 p.m. Instructors draw from a rotating slate of styles that, like months on a bargain-bin calendar, change every three weeks, so participants will learn two distinct genres during each course period, including tango and rumba (November 7–December 12) or the waltz and cha-cha (December 19–January 23). For more intense tutelage, one-on-two private lessons instruct couples in ballroom, Latin, or swing dancing. Dance masters schedule private lessons on any day of the week, calibrating training intensity depending on dancers’ goals, prior experience, and ability to withstand getting served.
