Day 12: Old Sturbridge Village

Here are a few of the sights from the Old Sturbridge Village, a living history village filled with all kinds of information and period collections.(1790 to 1840 New England.)

The fabric and notion selections of the day.

From the garden.
These lobed tomatoes are heirlooms called Big Red. We spotted them at the minister's house. According to the docent, tomatoes were a curiosity of the day and no one, not even the dogs, would eat them.

For the kiddies.


From the boat. Yes, I got on a boat. It was a little pontoon boat. And I may or may not have sang a line or two of Little Big Town...

Another butter mold to inspire.

A little applique. Gorgeous!

A grinding stone.

And finally, my guy as a Yank.
