Frontier Culture Museum - English Farmhouse

(click on photo to enlarge)

Yesterday we drove to Staunton to visit the Frontier Culture Museum. What a great place this is! First of all, it was a pretty warm day so we decided to rent one of their golf carts to take the self guided tour. The farmhouse above was built in 1620 in Worcester, England. It was lived in until the 1970's then was condemned. The museum took it and dismantled it and put it back together piece by piece. Same with the other buildings at the museum. Pretty amazing huh?! More to see this week!

  11. I haven't been there since they first opened years ago. They are a bit expensive to get in the last time I checked. I liked the Irish farm house, I think it was, the doors were so small, felt like I was going in a chicken coop but it was probably real efficient.
