Since 1937 this group has been busy preserving the history and heritage of this area of Michigan, specifically Mason County. This includes a community of 29 buildings that are situated on 23 acres of beautiful lands and gardens. Sounds like a real estate ad or a travel brochure? I’m sorry it’s just the truth and the only way I can describe the place. So here are a lot of Pictures from some of the buildings.
Let’s go see the general store…
The slide show above is a typical trappers cabin. Brenda and I both agreed that we could be very comfortable there.
There were several more buildings with all sort of things from that time displayed. We managed to make it through all of them before we had to move on.
SO, I’m going to close for now as it’s time to head out for the next stop. I’ll let you in on a secret, the next blog post will still be from Michigan.
We step back in time once again with one of the period actors here at Fort Boonesboro. This time to hear the story of surrender at the hands of a few, very few, brave Kentuckians….
Yes, it’s true I’m still playing catch up. It seems that there’s just not enough time between planning, adventuring, and work to share with ya’ll all the cool stuff we find to get into. Since this video we have been gathering geodes, gold panning, camping in the forest with a friend, hiking at Natural Bridge, visiting a campsite on the Elkhorn Creek, touring Lost Sea Cavern, and that’s all I can remember without Brenda’s help.
