ABOUT THE AREA
Platte Ridge park is a recreational area over 200 acre in size where youth and adults can play baseball or softball on fields with lighting for daylight or night time use and soccer or youth football. The park also has a shelter house with picnic tables and grills, kids' fishing pond, a 5k cross-country trail and hiking trails. The Ben Ferrel museum building is itself an archive of the past. It is Federal Empire Victorian brick mini-mansion. The home has been kept intact so you will find on the first floor a parlor; sitting room with bronze marble fireplace; dining room with large double sliding wood-on-wood German hand-grained doors; kitchen with a German tongue and grove wood ceiling; and latticed back porches. If you take the curved walnut and mahogany staircase to the second floor you will find four bedrooms. All rooms are furnished with items dating from 1840 to 1900 and reflecting Platte county history.
