Barn Charm Tuesday - Irish Farm @ The Frontier Culture Museum

Now on to the 1730's Scots-Irish farm at the Frontier Culture Museum.

Yesterday a friend of ours told me that his "daddy" grew up on the land where the museum is today. They still own a portion of it and the museum purchased the homestead and outbuildings. The family home was moved but some of the outbuildings remained. He didn't know if they were still there or which ones. And just like the Engish farmhouse I showed you yesterday, this one was moved from Ireland.

  3. That's so neat. I have my great great great grandmother's Irish whiskey shot glass, which she brought on the boat with her when she immigrated. My grandmother said that she took a shot of whiskey every night before bed. It's hand blown, and you can see a couple of tiny bubbles in it :-)

  6. In the 19th and early 20th Centuries only the poor lived under thatched roofs. Now it is only the wealthy who think it is quaint and nostalgic. Fine photos. I've enjoyed this series.
