@ Amy, If, I can remember correctly. Started out nice, when we go there. But, by the end of the day. The sky, turn green, We're in the hat shop. The weather was getting nastier. It was pouring. We waited until the rain lit up. Then, we went to the gift shop. Start poring again Wind starts picking up. Not sure, if tornado touch in Greenfield Village. I think, it pass by us. They told the guest. stay away from the window. So, I couldn't tell if, the tornado touch or not.


I hope, it's okay, I can post some of my Greenfield Village on here. Since, I went their today.

Well, we're suppose go to Henry Ford museum. To see Titanic exhibit, with my two nieces. But, they had already had plans today. On their dad side. So, yesterday. My mom mention, the movies. I was like, I want do something different, on Saturday. So, we went to Greenfield Village. We got there late. We got discount from our health insurance. So, that was good. We went to Eagle Tavern for lunch. I had the Roast Beef, with season vegetables. I tried zucchini. Not my favorite. I had dinner roll & blueberry muffin. For dessert Blueberry tart. It was huge. After the restaurant. I was talking to the lady Who work there. (She's the greeter.) We got talking. She like my Schnauzer purse. Then, a mom & dad, with their 6 kids. 3 kids in train wagon. Turns out, the mother is old friend of mine. I met her, during homeschooling When I was in 11th grade. I haven't seen her, in ages. We got to talking. God, was telling me, something. That was it. Seeing an old friend, for long time.

We did have fun. We went to school. Usually, you they have it lock up. Only look through. Some houses. Didn't go to Firestone farmhouse. One of my favorites to look through Maybe some other time.

Now, the pictures. Their just a few.


This is T-Model skit. (behind the school.) I got their in the middle of the skit.

Pic 1. (Lady dancing)


Pic 2. (Lady & man singing)


Pic 3. (The skit players singing.)


Pic 4. Men singing (cute guy in the middle.)


Pic 5. (Pretending to drive T-Model car.)



Took picture of dinning room. (close up) & pitcher. I think, it was the Robert Frost house or different house.

Pic 1. Dinning Room. (close up)


Pic 2. (Pitcher)



Took this picture, when going to gift shop. But, we stop to look at Wright Brothers house, Wright Cycle shop, Main Street Emporium & Cohen Millinery.
(Ignore the guy with his arm. I do not know him. Somehow, parts of his body was in my picture.)


Went into the Cohen Millinery (hat shop.) Took two pictures.

Pic 1. (two hats)


Pic 2. (hat.)




Yes, I enjoy my day. It was hot outside. Not 90's. I did put sunscreen on. We did went in the shade few times.

Great pictures!

I'm planning on taking a major detour there next year (I have all my plans set and reservations made for the 150th of Gettysburg). I've heard about this place since I was a kid because my family went a few years before I was born. But I saw the Michigan commercial that featured it all about 3 times last year. And ever since I saw it I have been obsessing over going there. So now seeing these pictures, I am looking even more forward to it!


Who's going to do the cooking?!?!

Whoops, I can't believe I missed this, Melissa! thud Sorry about that!

I am glad you had so much fun there this summer! Seeing all these pictures makes me want to go back again. Fall is my favorite time of year to go, so I have been pining away for it. Love

Thanks for sharing! And Miss Oleson, I do hope you will be able to visit next year! You won't be sorry, I'm sure of it. Thumbsup

I went back to Greenfield Village over the weekend to celebrate my friend's birthday! They were 'half' decorated for Christmas....so beautiful! It was a gorgeous sunny day...slightly chilly but no wind, and 52 degrees! Perfect. loveheart

Me going into the General Store....this store really reminds me of the one in Anne of Green Gables. Love




The Eagle Tavern 'dressed' for Christmas. loveheart




LOVE eating in the Eagle Tavern, right in front of the fireplace! Thumbsup I had pork loin (fresh from their farm on site) and sauerkraut. Yum!








I keep thinking I'm going to get tired of this place at some point, but it just seems to become even more charming every time. Love

Alex, it is intriguing. Thumbsup I can't get enough of it!

Jacob, it is located in "Dearborn", which is near Detroit. You would love it, I know!


I had to share this. This is a picture of President Obama sitting on the Rosa Parks bus, which sits in the Henry Ford Museum (which is part of Greenfield Village). I sat on this bus a couple of years ago and talk about a moving experience. I can't imagine how the president must have felt, sitting there. What a powerful picture!

Oh my gosh Rob, how did I not 'get' that when I wrote it! Laughing


Alex, it would be a great place to visit! I've always said it would be fun if all the Michiganders (and anyone else) could meet up there. Thumbsup
