This will be my final installment on our visit to Fort Christmas park. Below is a sampling of some of the homes and interiors. Enjoy!
There is a 1930s pavilion, a 1920s ball field, cane mill and syrup kettle (used at the annual Cracker Christmas event in December), a church exhibit, a research library, a turpentine exhibit, textile equipment exhibit, sugar cane patch, post office exhibit, chicken coop, cow camps, vegetable garden, hunting, fishing and trapping exhibit, and a ranching exhibit. WHEW!

Gosh, these are amazing It makes me think of how people strive to have more and more and then less and less becomes very appealing. But there was a lot of hardship associated with these homes.
So true. I can’t imagine life in the 1800s or even the turn of the 20th century for that matter. But, on the other hand, I suppose anyone living then would say the same about our lives if given a glimpse!
You mean how we do this fast pace?
Yep, among other things.
Linda i love the photos of the buildings. You have really captured the tour for us very well. Thank you.
Thanks, Sue! 🙂
kewl place 🙂
T’is that! 🙂
Oh I just love the interiors! This gets my imagination going……
I know what you mean. It seems like their lives would have been so simple and pleasant and yet…
I LOVE the dilapidated looks of the exteriors! Awesome!
I can’t imagine they would have survived this long without a little help! 🙂
Oh. My. Gosh. The old outhouse. Now there’s something I will NEVER miss – THAT smell! 🙂
HaHaHa! Boy, isn’t that the truth!
gotta love the outhouse!! But the house is so cozy and warm looking!
I will admire the outhouse from afar!! I did enjoy the home interiors, though! 🙂
wow – this is amazing – I enjoyed it!!
I am so glad you did! Thank you for your kind words! 🙂
Lovely, lovely. And all those pretty items everywhere. I always enjoy going to these kinds of museums, admire the people of the past and their ingenious way of coping. And than…return happily to our modern home with kitchen appliances and real bathrooms ;0)
Great series of posts!
Thanks, Johanna! It is fun to visit these places and imagine their lives. And it’s even more fun to come home! 😀
Great photos! Such a privilege to visit the place. They are well preserved and beautifully displayed. Thank you so much for the tour, Linda!
Thanks, Amy! I’m glad you enjoyed it! 🙂
These are incredible photographs, Linda! Why am I missing you? It seems you are not in my reader. Isn’t that special? Thank you for the work you put into this post. I really enjoyed it!!!! Love, Amy
I don’t think we’re the only ones experiencing the case of the missing posts in the reader, Amy! I’ve noticed ones missing from mine and I’ve read others complaining about the same thing. Ah, technology, ain’t it grand! 🙂
Yes, aint it grand! I seem to keep getting the same posts in my reader, and I KNOW I follow MORE then what is showing. And then when someone like you comes along, I am like WHAT???? Yep, techy poo. That is what I say! LOL
I would live there, now. Love it .
I might have been able to when I was young! HaHa! 😀
All you’d need is well water and a generator maybe.
