Goodells County Park is a growing, changing place that features:
The Historical Village, which includes the Columbus Bible Church (1860), Mudge Log Cabin (1863) Murphy/Ryan Farmhouse (1872) and Lynn Township School (1885), stands as an icon of 19th-century Americana.
The St. Clair Farm Museum is located in the historic farm barns that are from the old County Farm that once occupied the site.
