My only regret is that we were here “Out of Season” and on a weekday.  On weekends “In Season” there are volunteers dressed in period costume.  That would be wonderful to see.

    I need to see this!

  2. What a great tour. It looks sort of like Old Sturbridge Village in my neck of the woods. Is it a place you would go back to on season?

    1. Yes….I would love to see this with people working and walking around in period.

      1. I love places like this when they are alive with the activity of Colonial America.

    I BLOODY DID !!! – thanks heaps, Iris ! As you know, this is my favourite era in American history; and it’s the first time I’ve seen what a village looked like in the time of the revolutionary war.
    More, please !

    1. Unfortunately this region is a two day drive east of me, so it won’t be any time soon. I DO plan to go back though.

        I will stoop to accept ANYTHING from the 18th century …

    I love the fact that some of these historical old places are kept alive and are maintained for the public to enjoy. It looks like this old mill is well loved and respected. Thanks for sharing, Iris. I love the multiple dormers in the roof of this wonderful old building.

    1. Yes and all the work is done by volunteers

    Amazing Iris, while I don’t live close, I don’t live that far away from this place about 3-4 hours probably, and never knew or heard about it, Loved your post~!

  7. There is so much odd stuff in USA. Jerusalem mill, what a cool name.
