I spent one day at Upper Canada Village while on vacation. It is a working mid-1800's recreated village. While the people who work there share history and educate you, they grind wheat, bake bread, make cheese, saw wood, spin wool, quilt, make corn brooms, grow vegetables etc. It was a fabulous place. Twenty three members of the family went. We enjoyed a picnic lunch and the day was perfect.
My favorite part was the building with the loom. I loved the smell in there of old wood, and fiber.
