Glad for the Groupon to introduce me to Rural Hill. We picked the Sheepdog Trials Dog Festival as our free event and so glad we did. It was just wonderful, as is a Rural Hill. Can't wait to go back and really explore.

Staff was very nice. They had complimentary off spray, sun tan lotion. And hand sanitizer. Throughout the maze, they had complimentary water. My family had a great time. Looking to go to this place again next year.

I hear it gets better in October, but it was pretty boring the day we went, and we had someone telling us where to go even though we weren't asking for help,

From Our Editors

In the 1780s, blacksmith John Davidson moved from his log cabin, Rural Retreat, into Rural Hill, a majestic plantation-style house he built on his 265 acres of fertile farmland. The land and two houses were passed down through the Davidson family in the ensuing years, but in 1886, the mansion burned down. Then, in 1898, the log cabin also burned down, and the family was forced to live in a log kitchen building.

Visitors can still visit that log kitchen building today (it's the only historical residence remaining on the property) and see how hard life could be in an era without such modern conveniences as easy-squeeze mayo. The property has become, among other things, a field-trip destination, where historical re-enactors teach youngsters how 18th-century people baked, lit their homes, and did other basic tasks.

There's plenty of other reasons to visit, too. The secluded hill plays host to special events throughout the year, such as a fall corn maze and a Scottish festival with Highland games. And visitors can hike through nature on its peaceful 5K trail or entertain wedding guests at the cultural center.
