Genesee Country Village and Museum – #8

This post continues with details and photographs from our visit in June to the Genesee Country Village and Museum.

As I mentioned in an earlier blog post, the Historic Village spans three time periods — Pioneer Settlement, Antebellum Village and Turn of the Century. In today’s blog post a short walk will take us through all three of these time periods.

Hyde House, c. 1870 (Friendship, NY)

The Hyde House is located in the Turn of the Century portion of the Historic Village.

George Eastman Boyhood Home, c. 1840 (Waterville, NY)

The George Eastman Boyhood Home is located in the Antebellum Village portion of the Historic Village. George Eastman was the founder of Eastman Kodak Company. He lived in this house during his early youth.

The Eastman family enjoyed comfortable living.

The Silver Base Ball Park, which we visited in Wednesday’s blog post, is located behind Hyde House and the George Eastman Boyhood Home.

Jones Farm Farmhouse, c. 1820 (Orleans, NY)

Jones Farm is located in the Antebellum Village portion of the Historic Village.

Cheese was being produced inside the Jones Farm Farmhouse.

Shaker Trustees’ Building, c. 1839 (Sonyea, NY)

The Shaker Trustees’ Building is located in the Pioneer Settlement portion of the Historic Village.

Shaker-made furniture

There is a replica of a Shaker store on the first floor of the Shaker Trustees’ Building.

We will continue exploration of the Pioneer Settlement in my next blog post about the Genesee Country Village and Museum.

    Oh my, I love the architecture of the Hyde House. It is such an interesting shape. I've never heard of this place, but can see from your photos that I would love visiting there. Unfortunately, it is a long way from here. I'm mentally making a note of it though…just in case I ever get to take my dreamed of rambling road trip.

    These posts are so interesting! I just love all the pictures. I just help but think of all the work to preserve these buildings and the furnishings inside. They have done such a great job!

    You've gotten some wonderful pictures of all three houses. The Hyde house is especially interesting since it appears to be octagonal in shape. I've seen the outside of octagonal homes before, but have never been inside one.

    How neat, Linda… It's nice to see all of the time periods in the same post. I'm having a hard time choosing a favorite… Love the Hyde House–but I really love the cozy look inside the Eastman House. And of course I love seeing the Shaker furniture. It was all GREAT… Thanks… Hugs,Betsy
