Historic buildings have barriers between you and our staff: some are counters, Plexiglass, wood or rope and stanchions. Staff have been instructed to wear their mask when they are in close proximity to you or other staff and/or/if they wish, at any time.

Common surfaces: barriers, railings, counters, etc. will be wiped down with soapy water frequently. Services at St. Mark’s Anglican Church will require physical distancing.
Each wagon stop is marked with a horse head silhouette and has a hand sanitizing station. Where physical distancing is not guaranteed on horse and wagon rides, please sanitize your hands and put on your community mask prior to boarding.
