Genesee Country Village and Museum – #2

This post continues with details and photographs from our visit to the Genesee Country Village and Museum. In yesterday’s blog post we entered the Historic Village through the Toll House and observed a flag raising ceremony at the Antebellum Village Square.

Please join me today in a stroll along Maple Street in the Antebellum Village.

The Altay Store is stocked with hundreds of items of general merchandise corresponding to the store’s own records from 1852.

Costumed Interpreter

She noticed that I was taking pictures of each building along Maple Avenue, both interior and exterior shots. She asked if I would be taking pictures of everything I saw that day. I replied affirmatively, as it was my first visit to the Historic Village. I, then, asked the costumed interpreter if I could take her picture.

    That is a neat village, Linda. My favorite is the Boot and Shoemaker's shop–but they are all great.. Is this a state thing–or national–or privately owned??? How do they fund it? It's SUPER… These are the kinds of things which George and I love to visit also.Thanks… Am looking forward to more.Hugs,Betsy

    @Betsy – According to its website, the Genesee Country Village and Museum is “chartered by the New York State Education Department as an educational institution”. It is funded via donations, memberships and admission fees. We paid $15.00 each for an all-day pass to the museum.

    We make a point of visiting such living history sites. This one looks like it would be well worth a visit if we were ever in the area.
