I love, love, love living history museums. Always have. I have fond memories of visiting many as a child and even fonder memories as an adult. We visited Conner Prairie over the weekend and it reminded me how much I love them. I am in awe of the historic buildings.
I am inspired by the interiors.
And, of course, I love the animals.
But my favorite part has always been the people. The living historians that go about their day in period dress, portraying life during the their particular time period.
I’ve always secretly wanted to be one.
Starting tomorrow, I will fulfill that dream. I will become the farmwife at the 1900 era homestead at Billie Creek Village. If you’re local, and you’re attending the Covered Bridge Festival this year, stop by and see me. I’ll be tending to the garden, keeping the house, knitting, spinning, sewing and feeding the chickens, sheep and goats. You know, all the stuff I do every day.
