Bad Axe Historical Village

In Bad Axe, we stopped to visit a historical village that was open to the public.


It was most interesting!


First, we visited the schoolhouse, the church and the barn, but unfortunately I didn't get any pictures of them.

Then we visited the general store.





On their counter, they had many objects...


including a sausage stuffer


a little shoe

 and a bowtie making kit (cool).


They also carried hats and some clothing.



Then we visited a cabin that had housed eleven children and two adults in its day.


There were only four rooms.
Downstairs, a kitchen




a bedroom



Upstairs, a room where the bathtub and some clothes were kept





and another bedroom with two beds




It was a real trip back in time!
