If you want to see something old, chances are that Ralph Space owned it! The boys were most interested in looking at the stuff, I was most intrigued by the fact that man would feel compelled to own, catalogue and display all this stuff. I came across this article, and now I definately need to know more. I should have picked up the two books Dennis offered me in the gift shop :(
There is a play park in the middle of the zoo that suited us nicely. It was old (you know, metal and nice and dangerous) climbing equipment and swings. There is a picnic area and coolers are welcomed. We didn't need to bring ours in since we ate our sandwiches on the way up. Dessert was a 'Summer Smash Pie' with 6 forks purchased at a roadside stand.
We knew we were in good company when spotted this sign.
The collection of animals housed here is listed here. One animals I had never seen before, but heard of recently due to making a natural comeback in New Jersey, was a Fisher.
|This is Fred Space, Ralph Space's son. He was very pleasant to talk to. He told us that his son and grandkids are all involved in running the farm & museum.|
