Time in History

This photo was taken in late August 2015 inside the living quarters at the Great Hope Plantation located in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.  The period of time in history was around the late 1700’s.

I heard that Great Hope Plantation will no longer have interpreters but will be a self guided tour with signage only.

The Journeyman and the Blacksmith

In the early Colonial America, the early women colonists and settlers were expected to help the men in a variety of hard labor tasks in order to survive.  As shown in the blacksmith shop, this young lady is a journeyman working as a trades person.. This photo was taken in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia.

Home Sweet Home

home-sweet-home-richard-smithThis is a re-creation of a family farm during the 18th century. The farm buildings include a kitchen, smokehouse, corn house,to tobacco house. The log house and sheds were built out of uncut logs and a mixture of mud and manure filled in the cracks. The 900 square foot log cabin that housed the workers was home for as many as 12 men, women and children.
