    Ellicott City has two “t”s not one (as it’s spelled in the title). Thanks for featuring this gem!

      Fixed. Thanks!

    I never got to visit this park back in the day, but my family makes it there at least once a year. A few times we’ve even had our daughter’s birthday parties there. The buildings and figures have been beautifully restored and while there are no amusement park rides, adding this to the farm makes for a great mix for the kids. They get to experience all these old buildings and scenes while seeing all the farm animals and going on the hay ride. We love it there.

    I’ve never been there, but I remember seeing it in John Waters’ movie Cry-Baby. Here’s a part of the scene filmed there: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wDYSsntMVsQ. I’m glad to see they restored and moved some of the pieces.

    Yes, Mom would load us up (six of us) into the ’62 Ford station wagon and take us there for the day. There was lots to see and I enjoyed climbing on everything.

    Lived in Columbia from 1972 to 1981 and visited Enchanted Forest almost every summer. Thanks for bringing back good memories. I seem to remember a covered slide, like a helter shelter, but can’t find it on the internet.

    Went there in the mid-70s. Remember the scenes of the seven dwarves digging gems in a tunnel there. Also remembered a large tree in the picnic area that had a porthole where you could see Alice falling down the rabbit hole.
