Allarie State Park

 We love this State Park and visit often...
Allaire State Park is best known as a historic 19th-century iron making town,
for Allaire Village and The Pine Creek Railroad.

This block of row houses was originally constructed in 1832 and was completed the following year.
These row homes housed the skilled iron workers and their families.

One row house might be home to 10 or more individuals.  

The remainder of the building is a museum that gives an overview of 
James P. Allaire's businesses, The Howell Iron Works Company
and the Pine Creek Railroad Company.

This is a building inside The Allaire Village that we don't always explore.
It was a nice look in to yesteryear!

Interesting photo's and I can't imagine living in a row house. They must not have been much privacy.

I do love looking inside those buildings and just imagining living in that time and what it must have been like, looks like they have some nice furnishings in those. We lived in row houses at a few bases were stationed at.

Thanks for the tour! I'm a little surprised the iron workers home building is made of bricks. Many such quarters in other industries were made of wood. Linda in Kansas

Such an interesting place, Debbie! Love the pictures. The rail cars remind me of my paternal grandfather; he was a rail engineer. Wish I could have known him.
