Welcome, Friend! I trust your journey hasn't been to rude. Have a seat and loose your burden for a bit.
We're glad you found us, and we'll provide what we might to make your stay more pleasurable for you, but be mindful of the fact that our village is very new, and much needs to be done for it to be useful. We have just moved to this place, and are working to make a workable settlement here.
Our intent is to provide a friendly place for those with an interest in the crafts, people and times before the year 1840. Most of our people and places here are from the 18th century, with a few from the early 19th century. We find that in many respects, there isn't a lot of difference in the skills and tools used from the late 17th century through to the early 19th century, and even the clothing styles changed very slowly, although the latest fashion is always desired by the ladies.
We hope that you will stay with us for a
while, and share the news of your home and journey with us. You know, the post
rider doesn't get to these parts often, so we'll be happy for you to visit a
bit and enjoy our repast with us. There's cool water in yon bucket, so fill
your cup, and sit a while with us!
We are closely associated with
several of our neighbors, and share many interests and skills. Please
visit these other neighbors, and they will provide you with many
moments of enjoyment.
