Doors of Old Sturbridge Village – Part 2

The second half of the door images from Old Sturbridge Village in Central Massachusetts. It is a beautiful place to visit in any season.

Doors of Old Sturbridge Village – Part 1

Last weekend we went out to Old Sturbridge Village, a living history museum set in the 1830s. I made a series of images of doors there and thought I would show them today because there is a tradition of showing doors on Thursdays.

Hancock Shaker Village

shaker-barn-and-silo-color

Yesterday, we visited Hancock Shaker Village on the Massachusetts border with New York. They are a Christian sect founded in the 18th century. Few of them remain. They are known for living simply and for their craftsmanship. The Shaker village in Hancock Massachusetts is now preserved as a museum.

Americana

Some of the items from the American Art gallery at Heritage Gardens and Museum. The lead image (man wearing a hat) in entitled ‘The Dude’.

Nature

Some nature images from Heritage Gardens and Museum. It is still rather early in the season here. Cape Cod is surrounded by the still cold ocean water making the temps about 5-10 degrees cooler than inland. Still, there was much to see. Cheers!

Flume

Flume End

We spent yesterday visiting Heritage Gardens and Museum in Sandwich, Massachusetts on Cape Cod. It has beautiful gardens and museums featuring Americana. As you enter, there is a lovely flume that starts just beyond the entrance (see bottom photo) and ends in a lovely grove (see top photo). More tomorrow. Cheers.

Painted Box Car


This is the final photo from the Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum. This is the coolest looking old box car ever with this very artistic paint job.

Trolleys: Old and Worn

The Shelburne Falls Trolley Museum aspires to restore restore additional trolleys. They have several old trolleys on tracks on the property and have built a new “car barn” in which to work on them. Even in their old and worn condition, there is still a beauty to them.
