Anyway, onto the pictures...
Andrew...the new village statue?
The well behind Amherst Humphrey House. I love to view the small details of the museum. That is one thing I really enjoyed when I worked there as a housekeeper.
Interpreter telling us about yarn dying. I could stand there for hours listening to them. No matter how many times we go, we always pick up on something new.
Pots over the fire. Something about the smell of an open fire.
Wagon in the Blacksmith shop, Andrew loves this building the best! I can picture a family in this wagon, loading up their belongings and heading out to homestead. Such a simple, yet very hard life!
Spring cleaning at the Pioneer Cabin. Putting new straw into the mattress.
Roasting a chicken in the hearth. I love this! It's hard to see the chicken..it is the tan blur in the background.
I'm currious to know what type of chickens they have here at the museum. I love the color.
Schoolhouse! Our children love going into this building. They read the chalkboard and try to answer it.
Oxen...Mike and Pat!! They are SO big. I can see why The Ingalls' used Oxen.
Cook at Jones Farm..this is my favorite house in the village. They also make cheese in this house. She was working on it as well this day. Here she is making a rhubarb pie!!
Romulus Girls School. This is new this year...the inside has been all remodeled and is now being interpreted. I loved how the desks went from larger in the back to smaller in the front. I look forward to seeing more from this building. The building has been there but did not have interpreters in it. It was also dark and dreary.
Such a beautiful table in the Livingston Backus House. I wonder why most of us do not set beautiful tables anymore?
Crushing cinnamon..this smelled so wonderful!
There will be more pictures coming this weekend...we are going on the Civil War Candlelight Tour!! We are so excited. The children are going along as an end of the year field trip. We studied the Civil War a lot this year.
