The Original 1800's Farmhouse

click on photos to enlarge

Sunnybrook Farm told us the house from yesterday's post was a re-creation, of "I think" this house:




For those of you that live somewhat nearby and expressed an interest in visiting, next month they are having a fun Folklife Festival which would be a great time to visit! We plan to go...for more info CLICK HERE

  1. This definitely looks old! Love how rustic it is.

    PS: I don't know if you did something, but the "block" did not show up today! :)

  3. The old and new houses are very much alike but the new one has varieties of wood that the bugs don't like as well as what was in the 1800 one. I don't think they were too worried about making them last 200 years when it was built, they were probably worried about the next winter.
    The information for the festival is still being up dated as things fall into place. Admission was lowered several years ago to Adults $10. Kids 5-15 $5, Adults 60 & over $5. Free parking. Food is regional so don't expect pizza.

  5. It's really hard to imagine living here, right? But when it was new, I'm sure it was a godsend to the residents who built it.

  6. It certainly does look drawn out of the mists of time.

  8. Neat looking photos. I would love to go to the festival also. Hope we can make it. We have a trip planned around the same time to visit hubby's sister who lives in California but we'll definitely be going some time.

  12. I enjoyed SF's info on this old cottage too Tanya, it's usually the other way around, that they built things to last so much longer back then than they do now oui!
