Greenfield Village - Winter
 

Home Up


 

    On Sunday, December 7th, we climbed into the van one more time this weekend to drive down to Greenfield Village to see and learn about Christmas's past. It was very interesting to see and hear about how things were a hundred years ago, and in some cases over 240 years ago! The best thing about going in the winter is that the crowds were extremely sparse, so we got plenty of time to learn from the people in each house.

    After we spent some time walking around Greenfield Village we headed into the Henry Ford Museum to see the train displays and to see the movie costume exhibit (no cameras allowed here though). The kids were able to pose for a picture in front of a green-screen. Here is what resulted from that experience...
