New England Farm Life - 1830s [7 IMG]
Camera: Panasonic LX-5 Photo Location: Old Sturbridge Village, MA 
Posted By: Sailor, 11-04-2013, 01:56 PM

During our recent visit to Old Sturbridge Village in central Massachusetts, I was - for some reason - captivated by a delightfully re-created New England, early 19th-century farm with a striking (to me) red house. Here are I few photos I collected that day.

Root Cellar:



Making Butter:



Door Latch:



Barn; will the door be closed to late?



Last Sight of Home:



Your can't keep 'em down on the farm, and this is the way out:

great series of when life was buddy. They sure had to work a lot harder than us but it all seems worthwhile to me.

I can see why you loved that red house. I wonder if it is milk paint - kind of has that look. Thanks for taking us along for a trip into the past.

That shot of the doorlatch brings back memories. I grew up in a farmhouse that was built over a period from the late 17th to early 18th centuries (ca 1692 to mid 1700's-ish), and most of the interior doors still had the old iron hardware like that.

Hey, Bob, thanks much. The folks that made a farm like this one work, were a noble bunch, but - in truth - their lives were filled with much toil and tedium.

Thanks, bud. As I walked around the dwellings and buildings, it occurred to me what hardship these people must have endured during cold, New England winters.

I really appreciate the kind words, tess. The shadows were definitely the icing on the cake; I was fortunate to be there in the morning, so that I could (photographically) take advantage of them.

I happy I was able to take you down memory lane - what experience to grow up in such a dwelling.

Hey, thanks much, my friend. It is a cool place, and Plymouth Plantation is also outstanding - I haven't been there since 1990.
