village walkers

Tuesday, July 19, 2016

Yesterday, Angela and I went to Greenfield Village. I have loved Greenfield Village ever since I was a kid, I was always fascinated by history and I loved seeing how people lived back then.

My favorite fact about Greenfield Village is that after Walt Disney went there, he based Disneyland after the set up of the village. Greenfield Village is definitely one of the gems of Ford Motor Company and of Michigan as a whole.

We got to take a photo in an old photo studio, ride a 1913 carousel (I rode a chicken so that's cool), look at some old farm houses, we ate lunch at an old tavern that women wouldn't have been permitted at during it's time, we saw some amazing landscaping throughout, and a ton of other fun things.

If you live in Michigan or you ever visit, this is definitely a place that everyone must see! You'll be astonished that Henry Ford had a crew that could move buildings all the way from Florida, you'll also be amazed that there is so much history you didn't know existed. Please enjoy history and have fun with it! 

xoxo, Aubrey
