Genesee Country Village and Museum – #4

This post continues with details and photographs from our visit to the Genesee Country Village and Museum. In Wednesday’s blog post we entered the Historic Village through the Toll House and observed a flag raising ceremony at the Antebellum Village Square. In Thursday’s blog post we strolled along Maple Street and stopped at several businesses along the way. In Friday’s blog post we strolled along Church Street, where we saw two churches and a tavern.

Please join me today as we visit the Livingston-Backus House, located on Church Street in the Antebellum Village.

I still haven’t shown you everything I want you to see on Church Street, so we will continue our stroll in my next blog post.

    I love that colonial blue. And Bob appears to be having a wonderful time. At first I thought he was looking at a menu…

    I have to laugh at the lastphoto. I remember visiting a mine museum in Montana. Toilets were on tracks and rolled through the mine by some unfortunate employee. Probably the new guy or the guy in trouble with his boss. Miners would do their thing. No privacy. Then it was off to the next group of miners.Stephen Tremp

    I am really enjoying this and yes I smiled at that last shot of Bob. He looks very comfortable on that old bench. I thoroughly enjoy going through old houses and it has been a long time since I have been to one where the people are dressed as yours are in these photos. Always had an interest in costumes from way back when. Looking forward to more as you take us up Church Street.An English Girl Rambles

    Wow—what a gorgeous mansion, Linda… I'm so glad you got to see the inside also… We saw some similar mansions when visiting Charleston and Savannah –but didn't get inside. Loved seeing the inside especially. Thanks!!!Hugs,Betsy
