Genesee Country Village and Museum – #5

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. In Saturday’s blog post we continued our stroll along Church Street, where we visited the Livingston-Backus House.

Please join me today as we continue our stroll along Church Street.

As we rounded the corner onto Orchard Street, we departed Antebellum Village and entered the Turn of the Century portion of the Historic Village. Immediately to our right we saw a fanciful building — the Pavilion Garden Restaurant. We looked at the time. It was noon; time for lunch. We decided to eat lunch at the Pavilion Garden Restaurant.

Bob ordered pulled pork quesadilla. I ordered a smoked turkey salad with cranberry vignette. We shared a potato salad. Lunch was moderately expensive but good.

After eating lunch we strolled to the end of Orchard Street, where we stopped at the Davis Opera House.

The first floor of the Davis Opera House served as a general store. It houses historical exhibitions, which I believe will change from time to time. Here are a few photographs of items that caught my eye, as we were wandering about the first floor.

A performance hall occupies the second floor of the Davis Opera House.

Note the stencils that cover the walls. The walls and ceiling were covered with stencils. The performance hall does hold special performances during the operating season, according to the costumed interpreter.

When we exited the Davis Opera House, we walked across Orchard Street to Hamilton Place.

I will share photographs from Hamilton Place in my next Genesee Country Village blog post.
