The Fairy Tale Story of how the wonderful attractions from the Enchanted Forest were moved to our farm ...

Once upon a time, there was a wonderful storybook park in Ellicott City, Maryland called The Enchanted Forest. Opened in August 1955, it thrilled and delighted generations of families from far and wide throughout the next 30 years. The Harrison family created this magical land to delight children of all ages and it was an important part of many families' lives for years. The imagination of the creators and the people who ran the park throughout the years made an indelible impression on generations of families. Sadly, it closed to the public in the early 1990s, leaving a void for all of us.
