Jay and I had a total blast at the homestead today. We got there early and were able to enjoy a stop for breakfast, and an easy set up (Thanks Brian! You were a great help!) Then we were able to take in the lovely setting. We have been going to the homestead for several years, but this was the first time we got to walk the grounds. It was enchanting and romantic - a great location for a nice family picnic or wedding.
See! It is beautiful! The crafts/trades people were set up in the rear of the house. It was nice, there were several interpreters: a tavern, a shingle maker, a carpenter (hewing HUGE logs in moccasins) a basket weaver, gunsmith and lots more! Jay and I were set up near the main entrance and we got so busy that we did not make it to all the areas - we missed the barn completely! :(
The hosts, Lynn and Kim Otto were wonderful, they helped set up, provided a great lunch and then helped to tear down with everyone. - A BIG thanks to both of them and all the volunteers that helped to make today fun and successful!
Here are some photos that Jay and I took during the day. If you have some from the event we would love to see them! Tag Stone House History on Facebook or Jay or myself!
