Sauder Village Random Images

These are the last few images I intend to post from Sauder Village (the 19th century village in Archibald, OH); at least for now. 🙂

19th Century

No. I am not that old (although there are some days I feel it). Jo and I visited Sauder Village in Archibald, Ohio; near the Ohio-Michigan border in northwest Ohio. The village portrays many parts of life throughout the 1800’s. Volunteers demonstrate many 19th century crafts and professions and are very well-informed artisans and lecturers. The village curator works full-time to maintain authenticity in both the look and action of the village. Today’s photos are a small tribute to the awesome volunteers at Sauder Village.

Sauder Village

Pat and I took a photo safari to Sauder Village in northwest Ohio. The complex features a village from the mid to late 19th century complete with craftsmen of all kinds. The complex also includes both a pioneer and native American village, a museum with 19th and early 20th century antiques, a quilt shop, cafe, and restaurant. Here are some of my favorite images from the day. The last image makes a very relaxing computer background. Email me and I will send you a copy (free). Enjoy and throw in your two cents worth of lavish praise or scathing critique. Either way, I enjoy hearing your thoughts.
