Thanksgiving In Allaire...

Chuck and I spent one last day at Allaire on Sunday.
We have visited Allaire the past three consecutive Sundays.
It's a wonderful place to spend a fall day.
Today they were celebrating Thanksgiving in the 1800's.
I'm going to show you parts of Allaire you have not seen yet!!


The Bakery built in 1835, was open...


so we had one of these...yummo!!


They were roasting a Duck,


and preparing a traditional Thanksgiving Dinner!!


At The Manager's House they were cooking a turkey,
this is the oldest structure on the property, 18th Century.

  4. We have a living museum in our town called Old Sturbridge Village. It depicts life in New England in the 1830s so would be similar to that. I would love to visit there and see the differences between here and there. Great photos that make the idea of visiting very appealing.

  16. Oh I just adore places like this! Always see and learn things you didn't know before when you visit. The old stone/brick of the buildings is to die for!
